War uf the Roses The Childreb

The Children of the Roses - Warren Adler

When the son  of the infamous Roses marries the daughter of a bitter divorced woman there is bound to be trouble.  The old quote "Children learn what they live" shows its truth here.  There comes a time when there is trouble in their marriage.
The characters are wonderful.  Josh Rose is incredibly likeable despite his lapse in judgement. Victoria Rose is a woman who sees life in black and white, there are no grey areas for her.  She seems so rigid you expect her to snap.  I wanted to dislike her but  I couldn't.  I found myself feeling pity for her.  Aunt Evie is lovable. Everyone should have Aunt Evie in their lives.  Victoria's mother is a bitter old shrew. She is very easy to hate.  I wanted to shake got her.
The story itself is captivating.  I was pulled in immediately and the book wouldn't let me go.  I kept saying to myself "Just one more chapter and I'll go to bed.".  It was suddenly 4:00 a.m. and there were no more chapters.

I loved it!
