She slept with another man because her and her bestfriend had a fight and wasn't talking to eachother . The guy she slept with set her up fr prostitution and was arrested for 6 months.In the she got a divorce with her husband.

*The second half was about a man named Baltimore who kept having to leave his area of place, because he got into conflict with many men and killed them. Didn't have much,this was back in the day of history. Not much money untill he robs someone. And in the end him and his bestfriend Henry seperates for the best. Because of Baltimore gets into so muh trouble and is on the run from the cops.

*Plot-Renee lives in Ohio where most of her life takes place.State of north central u.s. in great lakes region. Midwestern. When she goes out of town with her friend in the caribbean it's

Baltimore and Henry go to Kansas city, a city of northeast kansas on the missouri river adjacent to kansas city.

*Motiff- In the second half of the book Baltimore kills people and threatens them alot. He kills one guy for making him miss dinner when he just got off of work,working hard all day.

*Emerging theme: When Renee is married she realizes that her husband is controlling. He never wants her to leave Ohio or go out with her friend much. When she's pregnant he doesn't ever wanting to get intimate with her,which makes renne feel bad and like he's sleeping with someone else.

*Motiff-Renee brings up her ex and when she was going out with him (Robbie). She hates the fact that he's so shy and doesn't really make a move untill she says to. And she feels guilty about breaking up with him for another guy. She just thinks about him all the time.

*Style-both are different the first story from the second. the first story was more up to date and luxurious. while the other they talked differently and it was set like back in the day as an old time period or something.

*Quote-I decided that it would be to my advantage to keep our disagreements to a minimum until our marriage was more secure." This is said from Renee,she feels she needs to hold back on what she has to stay in order to still marry her fiance Leon.And untill there married then she can speak her mind,which sounds wrong but only to save her marriage. Because her mom really likes him especially since he fixed her sink.

*I ain't gone ever forget what you done for me."Henry says this at the end of the book to Baltimore as they part from each other.It's a sad scene in the book, because they've always been close and there best friends so parting away for the best was sad.Henry even cried saying good bye and of course Baltimore felt bad and was going to miss miss em.All because Baltimore was going to be searched for all his killings and things he didn't wanna bring his best friend down with him.
