Book Review: The Divorce Papers

The Divorce Papers
By Susan Rieger

Sophie Diehl is happily toiling away at an old-line New England law firm when Mayflower descendant Mia Meiklejohn strides through the door. While dining at the most chic eatery in town, Mia was handed a most unwanted supsitute for the wine list, divorce papers. Sophie reluctantly steps away from here crumblier law casework to conduct Mia's intake interview and to her dismay Mia insists she take the case- Sophie is just who she needs to take on her soon-to-be ex and his thuggish lawyers. For Sophie the whole affair sparks a hard look at the relationships in her own life with her parents friends and lovers. Smart, affecting and funny to the bone, The Divorce Papers is a compelling story of the lengths we'll go for that thing we call love. 

Susan Rieger a graduate of Columbia Law School has worked as a residential college dean at Yale and an associate provost at Columbia and taught law at both schools. She lives in New York City with her husband. 

I'll admit at first I didn't think I'd like this book, since it is centered around divorce, not one of my favorite topics. However I really did enjoy it. Since the main character is a lawyer I love that it's written by someone with a law degree and the whole story is kind of heartwarming. If you like When We Were on Fire you'll like this book.
