    1. The Honorable ThingHaving recently read Karl Jacobs' "The President's Killers," I fully expected at least a bit of political intrigue along with the love story that this book was billed as. It is filled with romantic intrigue, but it is without political intrigue. Still "The Honorable Thing" is a gripping and touching story about love between two married persons - not married to one another. They share an enduring love, but also love their spouses and their children. They must make agonizing dec [...]

    2. I was so pleasantly surprised by "The Honorable Thing"! I often read crime thrillers, but took a chance on this love story. I'm so glad that I did - it was a touching, funny and honest story about being married and falling in love with someone else. Do we deserve to pursue our own happiness.or don't we? The story made me think, made me laugh and made me cry. It is a fresh and often very funny view of the complications of love. I highly recommend it!

    4. Well writtenI found this to be well written but difficult to read only because of the time period it's in. It's hard to remember how different the moral fiber was of most people in the 70's. Affairs weren't common and the societal values were extremely against it. What is sad is that by the time he's free of his wife she's not avoiding. Life has changed in many ways since the 70's. This story is excellentwell written with accurate portrayal of these time period and the working environment.
