Classic Crave: Happiness Sold Separately by Lolly Winston

December 30, 2008 at 8:44 am 2 comments

I enjoyed this author’s first book Good Grief so I picked this up when it was new in August 2006.

After two years of infertility treatments Elinor and Ted aren’t conceiving. Elinor is depressed and withdrawn. Ted joins a gym and begins an affair with Gina. Elinor finds out. They separate. Then Gina’s son moves in with her and becomes attached to Ted, who begins tutoring him in math. Now what will happen between Elinor and Ted and Ted and Gina?

I think Lolly Winston writes real characters and I thought Elinor’s friendship with her neighbor was well depicted and rang true. The point of view shifts in each chapter. The ending has a sense of hope and ties up most of the loose ends.

    Hi ,
    I’m an art friend of your dad’s… love your book reviews! I would like to suggest a search function for your blog. I think I may have read Lolly Winstons’ Good Grief, but can’t remember. If there were a search button, I could easily look up your earlier reviews.
    Happy New Year & Happy Reading!
