Rate this:
Fiona Maye is a High Court judge in London presiding over cases in family court. She is fiercely intelligent, well respected, and deeply immersed in the nuances of her particular field of law. But Fiona's professional success belies domestic strife. Her husband Jack asks her to consider an open marriage. She decides to throw herself into her work, especially a complex case involving a seventeen-year-old boy whose parents will not permit a lifesaving blood transfusion because it conflicts with their beliefs as Jehovah's Witnesses. Fiona is an utterly fascinating woman, and the masterful portrayal of her troubled thirty-year marriage proves once again that no one gets at the heart of the male-female dynamic quite like Ian McEwan.
