Too many variable bogged the story down.
Addie had her life planned out since the age of six. However, with all the planning she could not predict all the uncertainty of life.
Addie went on a few dates with Patrick and then he broke up with her. Some time later, Patrick reevaluated his relationship with Addie and asked her to marry him. Addie never questioned the change of heart he had for marrying her when he did not even want to date her for the threat of his parents cutter no him off financially.
Addie quickly learned her planned life did not turn out how she expected. Addie did not bask in motherhood like most women. Nor did Addie desire being a stay at home mother. Addie had plans for a career. While Addie struggled with motherhood Patrick was assigned to work in China for one year. Patrick took the assignment without his family leaving Addie to juggle parenthood on her own. Rather than wallow in her grief Addie went back to work and hired a nanny.
Penny's character had some very callous remarks in regards to her sons wife. Penny did not like Addie and never approved of Patrick marrying her. Penny knew she was not mother material. Patrick never defended his wife or stood up to his mother.
In the beginning, it was easy to understand the appeal Addie had for Patrick. He fit into her long term plans. It was until he traveled to China leaving his family behind did Addie start to doubt her plans and marriage.
William was a wealthy businessman who sought Addie. He envied her loving relationship with Patrick and her bond with her children. William saw what her wanted and took without consequence. William preyed upon a weak minded woman who was struggling to find her way in her new arrangement as a mother.
This story was all over the place. Too many elements in the story with very little understanding as to why these characters were so flighty. This story led me in one direction and then led me to another. The characters had no emotional attachment. They just accepted these crazy elements as normal proceedings in life. I'm not sure what the intended purpose of this story was only that the characters blamed these choices on boredom.
The story had too many variables. The long string of deception was deplorable. The love triangles were disappointing.
These characters seemed to insert themselves into the role of father, mother, spouse, lover, or worker when convenient. None of these characters deserved these roles for they had abused the pure definition of what they entailed. When it came time to make a decision all of a sudden her children mattered and all was right in the world.
Clarity came in the form of making poor choices.
Personally loved it too much elements in one story but it was very intriguing
