Huh. I'm really puzzled by all the positive reviews. I really liked A Place of Greater Safety, and I'm looking forward to reading Wolf Hall, but this book really disappointed me. It's vague, bland, and nothing really happens. I suppose maybe there are some subtle undercurrents reflecting on women's lives in the 60s, but I guess they were too subtle for me. I felt like I never got to know the characters or even the basic of what was happening in their lives, and there was no real narrative structure. I dunno. It just didn't work for me I guess.
