Well, without spoiling anything, While I Was Gone was an immediate attention grabber, well written, and who wouldn't want to run into an "old friend" from our younger past, from our younger self, of who we are not today.

Anyways, i "anticipated" what was to come, which is very disappointing, and the end, well, let's just say I became disappointed in the ending. The last three (3) chapters i had to push myself to get through, and wanted to shake and slap "Jo". (lol)

This book grabbed my attention from the start and I couldn't put it down, but about halfway through the story sort of fizzled out and I had to force myself to finish it. Well-written, but definitely more of a story of self-reflection than a mystery/crime story it showed potential of becoming, which was the aspect I found interesting.

A nice slow reading book if you're busy and can't read it everyday.

I really liked this book. Not sure if it was the first or second Sue Miller book I read, but it really touched me with the ties into motherhood, being a wife, and managing a career. Also made me think of how I can be present in my life more.
