I have mixed feelings about this book. The premise was interesting enough: A 40-something woman, living alone, invites a young homeless family to live with her after they get into a car accident together. The single woman feels at fault, so the book attempts to explore how much people owe each other when something bad happens.

But something about the writing style bothered me. I felt like the author, in an attempt to be "literary", kept a real distance from her characters. Therefore, I didn't really care about the characters at all.

The ending was satisfactory enough, so maybe this could book could be worth 3.5 stars.
