I had such high hopes for this one but I struggled to get through it. I just couldn't relate to Ella at all. I felt sorry for her but she just struck me as a doormat all the time and I wanted to shake her and tell her to stop being so wet.
Her relationships with her sister, her parents, her children, her husband, her male friend.....it just all began to annoy me. I get it, she was trying to make the best of a bad situation but I just could not commiserate with her at all. There were a couple of side stories that I really enjoyed but mostly I was lukewarm for Ella and her problems.
