The portrayal of this woman's marital somnambulism is so flawless that you want to scream at her, but the author skillfully uses it to present the character's full awakening. She's a heroine with a sense of humor who is realistic about the failings of her own psychology. I loved the accounts of the late-bloomer dating experience and found the new romance thoroughly winsome. 3 1/2 stars
