The End of an Error
By Mameve Medwed 

     We often ponder whether the grass is truly greener on the other side or curiously find ourselves exploring the outcome of the alternate choice. Such is the dilemma with Lee Emery, wife, mother, and first time author in Mameve Medwed's challenging story, The End of an Error.

     Ben and Lee Emery have just begun the prime of their middle aged lives, having successfully raised three grown children and steadily maintaining a sturdy marriage, adhered to by familiarity and habit. Lee has just published her debut memoir, a novel centered on the extravagant life of her eccentric and exorbitant grandmother, whom she comes to realize, in hindsight, influenced her life far deeper than she was aware. Unexpectedly, through this creative venture, she sets in motion a chain of events that lead to an audacious and coiling outcome, as it resurrects a seed sown long ago, in the arms of her first love, Simon.

     Medwed has confronted a common yet poignant issue that arises in many relationships. It is a story attired in doses of humor and embroidered with the mystery of love, first loves, and passion versus security. Her characters feel real and relatable, and take you through a journey of your own past, present, and anticipated future. Mameve Medwed's The End of an Error is a pleasurable read, yet not absent of distressing moments.
