The Life Room

  • Review
By – March 23, 2012

From the child­hood loss of her father, to the sui­cide of her first lover, through the wind­ing avenues of love and phys­i­cal desire into mar­riage and the mid-life cri­sis she cre­ates and painful­ly endures, Eleanor walks a tightrope between fam­i­ly, desire, unre­quit­ed love and pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al needs until she finds her­self lost and then found. 

The Life Room is a won­der­ful­ly writ­ten nov­el pop­u­lat­ed with emo­tion­al char­ac­ters who are, while some­what stereo­typ­i­cal, extreme­ly human in their frail­ties and strengths.

Women will love and con­nect with Eleanor Cahn’s jour­ney, and men…men should read this because for a man look­ing to under­stand women, this nov­el is an Alice, through the look­ing glass’ glimpse into a con­tem­po­rary woman’s mind.
