RE: The ending

I thought the ending was fine. I have read reviews that were critical of the way the book ended but I think the ending was Paula's way of dealing with the way her life had changed. I am not sure if the ending could have been more reflective on past events of the story. I think Paula needed to move on and this was her way of dealing with her responsibilities.

RE: The ending

I was satisfied with the ending. I was afraid that Paula would stay with her husband, which would be a kind of acceptance of his racism and abuse. It was more satisfying to see her leave him. I wish he had ended up in jail, though.
