I really enjoyed this book! It was a page turner for me. I loved the richness of the characters and the roles they played. My only complaint would be that I wish the ending had been more developed. It felt a bit abrupt and unsatisfying to me. It was also a bit anti-climactic, but I'd prefer that to having something bad happen to all those characters I came to love just because that's what I was anticipating all along. I wasn't too sure about the title being what it was to begin with, but after reading it, I feel like that's a great title for it (I love it when authors can come up with a great, unpredictable title for a book!) I think it'd be a great book club book to discuss!

Ann I am reading it now. Glad to hear you liked it. Love, Aunt Ann

Michele My feelings exactly, especially regarding the ending. But I do love it and our book group did it last month and then went as a group to see the movie. Fun! Fun! Love you!
