This is so obviously a translation that it intrudes constantly into the literary structure of the novel.A little more effort and some assiduous editing would have produced far better results. Nevertheless, the four damaged individuals who come together in this novel to form a family, and tell their absorbing tale is a thoroughly compulsive read.

message 5: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee I didn't love it right from the start. In fact, I almost put it down because I didn't like one of the characters but I'm very glad I stuck with it.
