It was definitely a good read, I've not read anything like it before and never anything that got to me so much. It just pulled me in.
Things are't always as black and white as they may seem. Really great book.
I would have to say this was my favorite book that I have read from the book club to date.
It was actually pretty darn good. I'm going to loan it to my mother. My sis too, if she's interested.
The story was told primarily in two different times - 1993 and 2007. It also flashed back at times to when the main character was 6, probably early 80s.
Overall enjoyable :-)
