The Marriage of Opposites by Anne Hoffman

Club Rating: 4.2

Rachel's was fascinating with her being married to an older man and then remarriage and fighting society. The imagery of the island life was very strong - the donkeys, the humidity, island life. The part with the son didn’t grab us as much. The characters were well defined. It was about women and their relationships but it didn't capture Rachel's relationships with her daughters/children. 

Some people didn't have compassion for Rachel after the first marriage. Others felt a compassion for her as she wanted love so much.
