Colleen wrote in one of her reviews, "There's a train wreck coming ...." and that's how it is with this book.

Hard for me to say anything about this book without giving the whole thing away. I did hear Tammy Greenwood read from this book and then talk about it a bit and one of the things that she said was that she had really come to love Kurt, the father, and Elspeth, the mother. For most of the book I couldn't imagine how anyone could love Elspeth and I wasn't so sure about Kurt either, given where I knew he ended up. But it all came around for me.

For writing and obvious plotting I'd give the book more of a 3 ... but for the overall long term appeal and the humanity revealed in the novel it's definitely more like a 4. I like books that take dark corners of humanity and shine a light into them ... in the end and in the sum of its parts, this book did that.
