Mizuki, the main character, has two beautiful young children with a responsible nanny. She lives in a comfortable apartment and has nice clothes. She notes her husband is wonderful. Tatsu is in good shape, has a great job, doesn't drink too much, doesn't beat her, doesn't squander money on cars and is a loving father to the kids. Sounds perfect to most.

But there's a catch. Her husband works huge hours and makes her feel "invisible." One night after feeling ignored, she took off and ended up at a bar. That's where she met an attractive,, exciting man. She loved her two kids and her husband gave her a good life. However, she felt like she was "the ham in a sandwich." There was a dilemma of what to do in this situation. However, she didn't hesitate when this new man asked to see her again...and again. She said, "Having a secret makes me feel like nobody owns me."

Parts of this book were interesting about pieces of Japanese cultural traits and the idea of living on a fault line. Yet, it felt like this story was clearly meant for women in their early 20s or 30s that can relate to what it's like when you're "not even middle age yet." It's not a long book but I didn't fly through the pages as this "ancient lady" was a distance apart.

My thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to read this copy with an expected release date of September 7, 2021. ( )

Mizuki is a Japanese housewife. She seems a bit stifled and bored in her life, wondering how she got to be where she is now…in a balcony considering jumping off. She used to be a club girl and a singer, she lived in America. Now she’s a mother, average not like the overachieving mothers. On a rainy evening she decides to dust off her flirting techniques.

The author writes in a very descriptive, lyrical way. You can picture yourself on the streets and in the parks in Tokyo. ( )
