As the novel opens Jon is receiving intimate e-mail messages from his girlfriend, Freddi, while his wife, Ginny, works outside in the garden. If Jon and Ginny had been able to have the children they wanted, perhaps Freddi wouldn't have had the impact she did. It was Ginny who gave Jon a chance of happiness after his tough upbringing with his bitter mother Marie and drunk father Bud. Surely Jon and Ginny could still be happier than Marie and Bud ever managed to be? Back in the 1960s, Marie and Bud were in love and their future was bright. Jealousy, betrayal and revenge got in the way, though, and drove the perfect couple into a nightmare marriage. Can the cruel mistakes of the past finally be left behind, or are their consequences to reverberate for ever into future generations?Read Less

Publishers Weekly, 2008-05-05 Fans of Schwarz's Oprah Book Club selection Drowning Ruth are likely to be disappointed by this convoluted novel about loyalty, love and obsession. Jon and Ginny Kepilkowski, high school sweethearts who were pushed into marriage by a freak accident, come to a crossroads when Jon, after an argument with Ginny, decamps to spend the day with mistress Freddi. Ginny, meanwhile, meets clients for her landscaping business, one of whom, Walter Fleischer, is part of a long-ago family conflict that is weakly developed in flashbacks to the summer of 1963, where Jon and Ginny's parents are embroiled in a perplexing revenge plot against Walter over lust gone wrong. Back in the present, Ginny comes close to discovering Jon's infidelity while Jon and Freddi are pursued by Ethan, whose clunkily rendered obsession with Freddi leads to a violent, if poorly presaged, climax. When the novel finally reveals its long-foreshadowed secrets, their import remains frustratingly unclear. (July) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
