My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The novel was erotic, but the loving descriptions of bespoke stationary and West Village life in a three story apartment with a garden--that was pure porn. I could have read those descriptions over and over again, but if I had I'd've missed a wonderful love story.
Tilda and Daniel's story opens a year after their marriage, when Tilda's asking Daniel for a divorce. So many love stories are courtship tales, but The List is about discovering the person you love, peeling back the layers and lies to get to the truth and making it work for you.
I know a lot of readers didn't like Tilda, her coldness, her inability to invest herself in the relationship the way Daniel did, but his patience and devotion was part of what I loved about it.
If you're looking for an adult book, in the best sense of the word "adult", you could do worse than to read Anne Calhoun.
