The chapters are really short and the writing is missing something; I was intrigued at first, but quickly lost interest. This story tries to do political drama and romance, but the author doesn't get the reader invested in either, so it just sort of flops.

Sort-of spoilers on the not-really-developing story:

Spoiler

The story opens with the MC's husband telling her that he wants a divorce, no real justification offered. She just decides to obey instead of demanding more explanations and confides in a few people to no real effect. (I might have missed it, but I didn't see any mention of where she's go after the divorce, probably because the author already knew that it wasn't happening.)

That's right, the divorce doesn't happen, but only because her husband supposedly elopes with the maid that she's close with. From that point on, the author starts political conspiracy tidbits, but the whole thing comes across as flat instead of thrilling information.

(They eloped to a foreign country. The maid was actually a spy. Maybe the husband is selling state secrets. The husband hated his father because of something relating to his deceased foreigner mother. [insert flashback/"when I was a kid..." narative dump here to explain preexisting relationships between all of the characters in the story except the MC]. Maybe the husband wasn't sleeping with the maid, but he's still ran off with her for some other reason.)

As for the romance bit, the MC's childhood friend Fee conveniently shows up just when she needs a shoulder to cry on. He's related to her husband through implied family relations that boils down to "MC's stepson's uncle." And he tries to woo her while she's probably (or ought to be) emotionally vulnerable at the occasions when she takes the kid to visit him.

[collapse]

It fell short of my expectations for what it seems like it's trying to accomplish, so I dropped it before I could resent the characters any more. <<less
