it was ok

Good book, although Ellen was very frustrating with her passiveness toward everything. I liked the story. I wish Quindlen could have developed more about Ellen's brothers. I also found it really strange that someone else could request an autopsy (I know for a fact that when someone is ill the family has the right to decline an autopsy - they will not perform one unless there is suspected foul play). It was interesting that her father was never questioned - only Ellen. None of the characters were really likeable. I actually found myself hoping that Ellen would be indicted, just to get a reaction from her.
