Rosa McKee's well-ordered life is shattered when her husband dies without warning of a heart attack. But the shock and upheaval are nothing compared to the abrupt transition she makes from widow to "woman scorned" when she discovers a series of love letters her husband has written over the course of six years to an anonymous mistress. Diana Quick explores the myriad emotions of Rosa and her friends and acquaintances who are witness to her grief, anger and newfound freedom. Quick's characterization captures the subtleties of Rosa's changing attitudes and mood shifts, as well as the raw emotions that transform her. She draws upon the depth and breadth of this story of transformation. J.E.M. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
