Marvelous Error opens in 1955 in the aftermath of a near fatal act of  domestic violence. Jeff and Eve navigate the  last few months of their marriage. This is a time of reprieve during which Eve embarks on a personal journey towards self discovery and empowerment. Part 2 begins eight years later. Jeff and Eve have lived completely separate lives following their divorce but that changes when a ghost from Jeff's past returns to haunt their 18 year old daughter Clara. Jeff and Eve are forced to interact and old patterns resurface. As with the other books in the series, Marvelous Error portrays family drama and the female experience in the context of social and cultural change. Marvelous Error is the third in a five book saga chronicling the life of Eve Lambert and her family. It can be read as a stand alone novel.

Nice denouement.  There is some self-awareness coming to Eve.  It does not appear that her deep-seated needs have changed.  The abuse violence will never end.  Just because it is dormant lulls one into a dangerous zone.

Thank goodness she didn't answer. I suspect many marriages move into the relationship described between Eve and Jeff. I think it's fascinating that one forged out of violence and abuse could evolve to the same place as one started with love and passion.

Her gardening would have been art but perhaps she never considered it in those terms.

Eve has some hard won wisdom in this chapter but based on her past actions I'm afraid she will forget those lessons.

Ok, in most situations I would find this the noble thing to do, but with her relationship, what she really needs is a therapist

Amazingly beautiful. I'm dying to see more! Happy that she's finally learning to grow up!
