Necessary Sins

Lynn Darling's Necessary Sins is the autobiography of a marriage through courtship and the death of the husband. Lynn Darling and Lee Lascaze, both of whom worked for the Washington Post, began their romance while he was married. He was much older and establishment, while she was a 1960s wild child. Darling's poignant story caused laughter and tears. Surely writing this novel was an exercise in catharsis, but the fact that she was willing to expose and share her soul with the reader is astounding. This book is very difficult to put down and difficult emotionally to read.
