Book Review - While I Was Gone

While I Was GoneWhile I Was Gone by Sue Miller
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was my book club selection for the month and we had some interesting views on it.

I loved the writing but I didn't love the main character, Jo. Jo's a middle-aged Veterinarian in a happy marriage with three daughters who are out of the house. When someone she knew from 30ish years ago reappears in her life, she relives those days and manages to make some terrible choices in the current day. I found her to be completely self-absorbed and perhaps some of that was because the book was told in the first person.

It was still a good read despite my lack of empathy for Jo.
