Friday Flashback

Another one from January 2002:

The Spiral Path by Mary Jo Putney. Contemporary romance.

To put it mildly,
The Spiral Path was hard to put down.

It was painful reading in parts, because MJP made me feel quite vividly for Raine. Her marriage is falling apart, her husband seems determined to let it fall apart, and she doesn't know why.

When we get to the why, it's heartbreaking. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it, so I won't elaborate, but once Raine finds out why Kenzie has avoided intimacy, she has to confront her own lack of emotional commitment as well.

Wonderful story of two emotionally flawed people who learn to face their pasts and heal old wounds together.

Loved the labyrinth--the spiral path of the title. I'm thinking that might be just the thing for the big bare spot in the backyard. I'm curious to see if it really works.

And there's also the insider's view of movie making, which gave me even more appreciation for the art of filmmaking, and made the existence of movies like The Impostor even more incomprehensible. But that's another story.

By the way, I have no idea what I meant by The Impostor. The IMDB doesn't know, either.

You can see the entire thread here.
