Mary is a sex addict who never cheats on her husband. During Jack's tour in Vietnam, Mary buries herself into taking care of their four children as well as starting a sewing business to keep her mind away from sex. Mary uses sex which occurs almost every night to keep Jack coming home and to keep Jack from cheating. Mary enjoys her physical love with Jack and likes Jack to think of her as his personal mysterious lover. Mary always changes the times, places and positions to make sure physical love with Jack isn't boring. The reader will see where this trait passes down from generation to generation. Mary and Jack are both devout Roman Catholics but see things differently. After Jack is called into action in Vietnam, Mary sees prayer and faith as all that pulled her through. Jack knows prayer alone doesn't work.


The author writes this story about places and groups of people he loves. The story takes place in Upper Orchard, Levittown where the author knows many of the residents and has been a letter carrier there for the past ten years.

The author also qualified on the M16 rifle, M50 and M60 machine gun, and his favorite weapon, the M203.

The author feels for all veterans. The one group he feels for the most was the Vietnam Veterans who didn't get the respect they deserved until years after the war. The story combines all of the elements that sell a story in this script. Love, sex, action, religion and depression all play a role in the Bordowski Household. The author had a lot of contact with Vietnam Veterans during his years as a hospital orderly at the Delaware Valley Medical Center and during his years in the U.S. Navy. The author also took care of many mental patients between the years of 1977 through 1983 at the Delaware Valley Medial Center and has seen everything from sexual addiction. up to and and including the typical mental illnesses.

Written by

Kevin O'neal

Score: 7/10.

Strengths: This is a beautiful story of a couple who have six daughters, overcome numerous hurdles of life, and still find time for each other. Throughout this, they spend time with each other and have fantastic sex which itself is immensely relaxing and bonding. The characters are interesting and keep the reader invested in the story. The dialogue is adequate and clearly indicates the time period this story is set in. Jack and Mary are adorable. The numerous support characters bring their own subplots and complement the story.
