Initially I enjoyed this tale of friendship, love and betrayal. Lots of orpahns here, and I am always taken in but that archetype. I don't want to get into specifics since there would be too many spoilers, but I found the last third of the book to be too melodramatic. Secrets kept too long started to get funky and far-fetched. For instance, a DNA test might have clarified one situation. I was fond of two of the 3 main characters, John and Cathy. As for Trey, I felt he was overly villianized and stuck. I think the tale would have been stronger without two murders being involved, but hey -- it's Meacham's tale to tell, not mine. Anyway, the book was entertaining for a while, but I wish it could have been both shorter and less convoluted.
