Lift and Separate: A Novel by Marilyn Simon Rothstein

Genre: Women's Fiction
Pubisher: Lake Union Publishing
Release Date: December 1, 2016



With three grown children, Marcy Hammer and her husband should be enjoying having the house to themselves. Instead, Harvey, the CEO of a lingerie company, is having an affair with a 20-something and moving on with his life. Marcy's world will never be the same.

Soon enough, Marcy faces new challenges, and there's no time for moping in her new life. She's going to do everything she can to face each day with the strength she never knew she had and with friendships she never imagined.

Lift and Separate is part drama and part women's fiction with a bit of humor thrown in. There's clearly little to like with Harvey, though I admit there were times I almost felt bad for the jerk. Keyword there is almost! I liked Marcy, though there were times I wished she'd be a little more forthright with those around her.

There were times I needed Kleenex on hand while reading Marilyn Simon Rothstein's novel. Other times, I found myself snickering. In the end, it was an enjoyable story that left me feeling very happy for the life I have!
