it was amazing
Read from September 02 to 10, 2012 — I own a copy

Steven Lee Gilbert is a talented writer who tells an interesting story of a broken family. It's a plot so topical today, I suspect that this book would make a great movie or TV show. Gilbert's writing is compelling, key to me as the storyline here is a bit outside my normal genre. The book pulled me along, as the point of view switches between the main characters. I greatly enjoyed the aspects of travel to Italy and the interspersion of Italian into the narrative (I am thinking the author must be fluent in Italian?). The plot closes in a crescendo, with all forces converging as one might hope, though the ending is a bit open giving the reader ample opportunity to imagine what s/he may.
