While I Was Gone af Sue Miller (1999)

    A Map of the World af Jane Hamilton (Severn)
    Severn: While I was Gone shares similar thematic elements, and a similar narrative, to A Map of the World, and comes highly recommended.

Sue Miller never fails to engage me and this book was no exception. The twist was a total surprise to me although I guess I should have seen it coming. I appreciated how realistic the ending was as well. Altogether enjoyable read. ( )

Although I generally like this author’s writing style with her honesty about feelings, the main character was irritating. I understood her running from her first marriage, enjoying a bohemian lifestyle in the 60s until a murder forces everyone to leave. She marries again to a minister and lives a good life as a vet with daughters. Why she felt the need to let the past and Eli then consume her every thought, ruin a wonderful sexual marriage. Lost all respect for her from that point in the story. Didn’t even care for the way ending went. She didn’t deserve to able to return to her old life. ( )

I enjoyed the book. I like the way the author examined the different layers in the protagonist's life. The author's descriptions of both places and feelings were, at times, quite beautifully written ( )

This is the story of Dr Jo Becker, veterinarian. Jo is happily married to her husband Daniel, a pastor. They have three young adult daughters who now live away from home. Despite not sharing her husbands strong christian beliefs, they have a good fulfilling marriage.
However, Jo's life was not always this happy. She had walked away from her first marriage and lived an alternate life for 7 months when she was young. This period came to an abrupt end with the death of a close friend. When another of her friends, from this period, emerges with his dog to be euthanized, Jo is forced to confront the past events and risks the stability, love and security of her marriage to Daniel.
I found these very credible characters and there were plenty of recognizable family moments and observations on relationships with husbands and children. ( )

I enjoyed this. She has an amazingly accurate voice for white girls from the late 60's early 70's. ( )

It's odd, I suppose, that when I think back over all that happened in that terrible time, one of my sharpest memories should be of some few moments the day before everything began.
