Author:  Lolly Winston

ISBN:  978-0446699396

From Amazon.com (and BookList): 

Infertility and infidelity pack a potent–and potentially fatal–one-two punch to Elinor and Ted Mackey’s once-idyllic marriage in Winston’s perceptive and poignant exploration of marital commitment and liberation. Intelligent and successful, the Mackeys appear to have everything going for them except the ability to become parents and the agility to withstand the devastating emotional impact such a loss imposes on their relationship. Her hormones in a state of turbulent imbalance, Elinor becomes alternately volatile and withdrawn, driving Ted to seek refuge at the local gym, where his nubile personal trainer, Gina, is more than willing to provide the sympathy and support he craves. Madly in love with Ted, single-mother Gina has a secret weapon to eventually win him over: her ten-year-old son, Toby, whose open adoration of Ted may prove too hard for anyone to resist. Once again, Winston demonstrates a laserlike ability to focus on the inescapable reality of contemporary relationships, tempering her characters’ abject pain with appealing good humor. Carol Haggas

    I just finished reading “Happiness Sold Separately”. It kept my interest for most of the book. A couple of transitioning parts were a little boring, but I pushed through those parts. I’m a “happily ever after” kind of gal so I was a little bummed at the end. I give it a 4 on scale of 1 10.
