1990.
Enjoyed reading the book. Altho there is plenty of sadness and trouble in it, it's an optimistic book. Passionate affairs and troubled marriages play a large role, but minor characters [mothers, neighbors, friends] are of interest, and the main character's relationship with her 9-year-old son develops nicely in the course of the book — perhaps too nicely to be realistic but one would like to think it could happen this way.
