I really rather liked this. No scratch that, I loved it.
The basic undertone of the story is one of miscommunication - a husband loves his wife, but doesn't think he needs to tell her, consequently his wife is not sure whether he loves her or not, and so she doesn't feel sure about her feelings - see what I mean - complicated. Enter a third party, Henry Dixon who acts as a kind of catalyst between the two.
The husband, Peter, is an old fashioned stick in the mud, still grieving the death of his baby son 15 years previously,and too proud to discuss it with anyone. His wife, Louise, is bored almost to death by the drudgery of her life. She comes across a business card and one day, feeling particularly fed up with her lot, she dares herself to phones the number on it. She connects with Mr Dixon and a friendship ensues.
Through time spent with her new friend, she discovers she does still love her husband after all, although she also manages to find a place in her heart for Henry Dixon.
Along the way we also get a glimpse into Henry's troubled life, and the effect his friendship with Louise has on it. The THREE WAY part of the title.
Be warned there are some graphic sexual scenes - all in context - and some adult language, but it's not all doom and gloom. The characters are likeable, real folks next door types, and the journey they take is a thoughtful reflection on the need for communication in a relationship.
I enjoyed it very much and have no hesitation in recommending it to you.
