Five - Julianna Baggot (Short Story)

Short Story Title: Five

Rating: 2 out of 5 horses
This is the story of a Tilly a woman who is leaving her fourth husband. She leaves him and goes to her only family her sister Elysius and her first and only husband Alex. Elysius is complete oppisite of Tilly, but has some sadness in her own life - the inability to have a baby. This is a story about them and their childhood and Tilly's hunt for husband #5.

Quote that I liked:
"Fourth husbands have to be both blindly optimistic and soberly realistic."

I'm not sure how one can be both "blindly optimistic" and "soberly realistic" at the same time. With demands like that, no wonder she's gone through so many!
