Read in October, 2007

I wanted to love it, and I did love it--until about halfway through. The book's characters are drawn well; they are unique and full of individuality. The plot is well paced up through the suspense of the oldest brother's trial for double murder. From then on, the book dissolves into a strange mix of cowboy western and religious fable. The plot loses steam, and I lost interest. The ending was tragically disappointing, the characters lose their depth, and their choices seem forced.

Sarita yeah, I kept wondering when we were going to get to the fireplace factory, and ...it was over in the first 1/3 of the book.

Lindsayleigh This is exactly how I'm feeling about this book. I've started skimming to get through it.
