A Beautiful, Terrible Thing

41ig0Ia9XFL._SY346_.jpgA Beautiful, Terrible Thing: A Memoir of Marriage and Betrayal by Jen Waite was not the best-written piece I have ever chosen, but it was compelling and quick. The chapters alternate between before Jen realizes that her husband is having an affair (which he adamantly denies over and over) and after. I kept thinking that a shoe was going to drop and something was going to surprise me, but it didn’t. This was a sad story, but nothing earth-shattering and somewhat predictable. I couldn’t put it down, however, and, as it is a memoir, you have to feel bad for Ms. Waite, especially as she figured all of this out with a colicky newborn. Worth a read? Yes, especially if you like memoirs.
