Summary

Mizuki has a hardworking husband, a beautiful apartment, two adorable children and a crushing sense of loneliness. She loves her family but feels invisible in her marriage and trapped by the confines of domestic life. Then, one rainy night, she meets Kiyoshi, a successful restaurateur, and quickly finds herself falling for him. In their affair she finds passion, excitement and freedom - but how long can it last, and at what cost?

Alluring, compelling and darkly funny, Fault Lines is a bittersweet love story and a daring exploration of modern relationships.

what was the point?

Didn't understand the point of this book. I kept thinking to myself "and" or "so what?" Not for me.
