The Breakdown Lane by Jacquelyn Mitchard

Last night I stayed up way too late to finish The Breakdown Lane by Jacquelyn Mitchard. This book was just as good as all of the others by Mitchard that I've read (she also wrote The Deep End of the Ocean, the blockbuster that Oprah started her book club/recommendations with).

Like I said, this was an excellent book, but the ending was a tad, just a tad, disappointing. It was a little too fairy tale for my taste.

Julieanne Gillis Steiner is a wife and mother who studied ballet and writes an advice column. When her reliable, responsible lawyer husband Leo becomes a crunchy new guy and changes his name to Leon, this "perfect" little life hits the fan. Julieanne learns she has multiple sclerosis and her children all react in surprising ways.

Have you read The Breakdown Lane? What did you think of the ending?
