I find this book EXTREMELY depressing !!!!

I know it's a true story of an A - and how she overcame it. I haven't slept since I started reading it.

I read it a few years ago. I cried the whole time I was reading it. I was so upset by it that I emailed the author, Isabel Gillies, and she emailed me back. We corresponded a tiny bit and she was so nice and real that I felt like I was talking to a friend on
SI. It is worth reading if you can get through it.

She's the actress who plays Elliott Stabler's wife on SVU, isn't she?

No wonder she was able to give such an honest performance about leaving a marriage (albeit not due to infidelity---more due to Stabler's "mistress," his job) onscreen.

Her new book is supposed to be quite good, too.

I, too, found the book sad and often depressing, but I was nevertheless riveted to it, and I don't regret reading it.

I didn't know she'd written a new book. Thank you for the information, Solus sto. I went to Wikipedia to find out more about it and was interested to read there that "Happens Every Day" was selected as one of NPR's "Fresh Air" Top Ten books for 2009.

PS I'm a L&O fan, and I freely admit that it was the author's SVU role that originally drew me to the book!
