Her Last Letter - Nancy C. Johnson

A quick light read, but this woefully dense protagonist kept making misguided (sometimes bizarre) choices that didn't ring true.


I found myself wanting to throw a cup of water on Gwyn's head and tell her to wake up!  She repeatedly made the wrong decisions, while expecting that her choices would magically produce the desired outcome.  Because life doesn't work that way, all she ended up achieving was turning her life into a circus.


While there are many who practice this warped brand of logic, the pattern is neither sympathetic nor entertaining.  You probably know someone like this in real life.  It's über-depressing to have to read about such a person without being able to shake some sense into them.
