Ellie

The tennis partner
As I am not a tennis player, reading this book that I thoroughly enjoyed, wished I was more athletic. I so enjoyed the characters. The agony of the addiction and divorce. The frustration of loving a friend you cannot help; The wasted talent you cannot preserve; the dilemma of not being physically present continually in your children's lives. I enjoyed it more than "Cutting for Stone".
