This story pissed me off. I wanted Pam to get mad, to stand up for herself, to tell these people to go to hell. Her husband dies and she finds out he cheated on her, brought the women to her home for weekend visits as friends and co-workers of her husband, had children with her husband, and even a man comes forward.
The book draws you in and keeps you interested, except that I wanted to slap Pam at times. She was too poised, too forgiving, and accepting. Personally I would have dug him up and castrated him, then had him cremated and his ashes scattered somewhere very far away. But then again, I would be a little vengeful too. Pam is lost without her husband, and confused by all these new revelations. She’s a little too controlled for me.
I knew a lady who found out her husband cheated on her after his death and burial. I don’t know that this story is true, but it is in character for her and I rather hope it’s true. When she found out he had cheated on her, she had him exhumed from the family plot and buried elsewhere. That’s the spirit I want to see from Pam, not this banal acceptance.
Stay tuned for more on this series. For this book alone I give 3.5 out of 5 clouds. I was sweet and an easy read, but I was truly too angry to enjoy the story. She was just too calm, especially when she finds out he gave her AIDS.
