George and Lizzie have radically different understandings of what love and marriage should be. George grew up in a warm and loving family, his father an orthodontist, his mother a stay-at-home mom, while Lizzie grew up as the only child of two famous psychologists, who viewed her more as an in-house experiment than a child to love. Over the course of their marriage, nothing has changed, George is happy; Lizzie remains, unfulfilled. When a shameful secret from Lizzie's past resurfaces, she'll need to face her fears in order to accept the true nature of the relationship she and George have built over a decade together.

This character-driven, heavy library reference novel took a while to grab my attention. Lizzie, the self-absorbed daughter of two very famous, very self-absorbed psychologists, and George, the ever-optimistic son of easygoing parents, find themselves in a marriage where one is more in love than the other. The story flashes backward and forward in time as the reader learns about Lizzie's life as a "psychology experiment" whose great shame in high school ends up in Psychology Today. When her boyfriend bolts after the big reveal, Lizzie becomes trapped in a hopeless love even as she moves on to marry someone else. There's a lot of navel-gazing by Lizzie and not so much by George which results in an awkward climax near the end of the novel. I think Nancy Pearl is a better reviewer of books than an author.
