Jim and Dina Now Tell All at Library

I just this minute finished reading the Dina Matos McGreevey book, “Silent Partner.”

I had read former Governor James E. McGreevey’s book, “The Confession,” twice. The second time I took it out, I noticed my penciled corrections from the first time. But I was concerned that Dina’s side of the story was not in the library. Thanks to the staff member who took notice of my concern, got the book and even sent me a reminder to pick it up.

While both parties had the benefit of ghost writers or whatever the PC term is nowadays, the stories are compelling, but need to be read together.

Anyone who has experienced a failed marriage, let alone one that grabbed headlines for weeks, will feel the pain of these recounts, even after deducting points for veracity.

Thanks to the Plainfield Public Library for obtaining both books so that readers can see for themselves the former partners’ points of view. There is much to ponder in these stories.
