A captivating new voice in women’s fiction delves into the haunted past of a physician’s seemingly perfect marriage. Simon and Emily Bear look like a couple that has it all. Simon is a respected doctor. His wife, Emily, shines as a partner in a premier public relations firm. But their marriage is scarred by hidden wounds. Even as Simon tends his patients’ ills, and Emily spins away her clients’ mistakes, they can’t seem to do the same for themselves or their relationship. Simon becomes convinced he’s discovered a cure for chronic pain, a finding that could become a medical breakthrough, yet he is oblivious to the pain that he causes at home. Emily, struggling to move beyond the devastating loss she and Simon suffered fifteen years earlier, realizes she hasn’t felt anything for a long time—that is, until a lover from her past resurfaces and forces her to examine her marriage anew. In a debut novel on par with today’s top women writers, Remediesexplores the complicated facets of pain, in the nerves of the body and the longings of the heart. Depicting modern-day marriage with a razor-sharp eye, Remediesis about what it takes, as an individual and as a couple, to recover from profound loss.

What a waste of time reading this book was! I would have stopped reading it after the first chapter or so but I kept hoping it would get better or tie itself together at the end to make up for it all-but no such luck.
