it was amazing

Despite some other readers' mixed reviews, I loved this book. All of the characters -- including the heroine, Lillian -- are flawed and yet sympathetic. Lillian does a lot of despicable things to get where she needs to go, but if she didn't, she would never have a chance. I loved how Bloom wraps up the rest of a character's life story when they exit the plot line. Her characters were so fascinating that I really wanted to know what happened to them. (Her end stories do not disappoint.)
