t was interesting but ultimately led nowhere.
A married woman is having an affair and decides she wants a divorce, not because she wants to be with her lover, but because she is unhappy. Her husband, a chronically angry man, doesn't like this and responds with sarcasm and negativity. Then he goes away, meets a healer and becomes a different man. He isn't angry, he is nice and polite; completely loses his sense of humor and his edge. He brings the healer home to live with them. The healer and the husband start trying to save the world by giving away worldly goods, money and food. Then they get the bright idea of asking all the neighbors if they have a spare room that they could house a homeless teen in.
The wife doesn't know which was worse; her mean husband or her seemingly lobotomized husband. But she is the constantly indecisive one and was driving this reader crazy with her drivel. She had an obsession with "being good" which is why she became a doctor. She is a liberal in her viewpoints, but when it came to giving away to all those in need she comes out with a more honest response. As far as doctoring, she felt herself somewhat of a failure. She reminded me of most doctors that I see; unable to help the patient and angry when the patient keeps coming back.
Depressing and meaningless.
