So.. this book is about two couples, separated by several decades. You can save yourself a lot of heartache by reading the first few chapters, and then imagine the most screwed up, depressing way they could possibly be related. There's no resolution, and honestly, I don't see the point of this deranged story at all. That being said, the writing style is lovely, so it is spared from a one-star rating.
