Lift and Separate

Lift and Separate by Marilyn Simon Rothstein

Lift and Separate: A Novel by [Simon Rothstein, Marilyn]

Marcy Hammer’s life has been turned upside down. Her husband, the head of a global brassiere empire, didn’t think twice about leaving her after thirty-three years of marriage for a 32DD lingerie model. Now Harvey the Home-Wrecker is missing in action, but Marcy’s through thinking about what a cliché he is. What she needs now is a party-size bag of potato chips, a good support system, and a new dress.
Striking out on her own is difficult at first, but Marcy manages to find traces of humor in her heartbreak. Even while devastated by Harvey’s departure, she still has her indomitable spirit and her self-respect. She has no intention of falling apart, either, even when her adult children drop a few bombshells of their own and she discovers a secret about her new, once-in-a-lifetime friend. Life may be full of setbacks, but by lifting herself up by her own lacy straps, Marcy just may be able to handle them all.


4.0 out of 5 stars easy to relate toMarch 16, 2017
This review is from: Lift and Separate: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
I rather enjoyed this book. Having gone through a divorce at 30, I felt the characters' pain, felt sympathy. I liked reading this, it was something I could connect with. I will say the ending wrapped up too quick and nice for me, but in all, it was more interesting than some of the "romances" I've read lately. It was realistic, you found it easy to not only connect with Marcy. You can feel for her, and what she's going through. It was messy, it was as close to real as you can get, while still wanting to turn every page! There was no boredom where I felt like putting the book down. The author took a serious, every day situation and made it witty, yet uplifting. This is a book I would certainly recommend book clubs take the time to read and discuss! A mix between chic lit and women's fiction, it's a story that I feel many women today can not only enjoy, but really relate to!
