A story that explores death, loss and relationships. I enjoyed the characters and the story the only thing that bothered me is that it is supposed to be written from the point of view of an American from Boston. Unfortunately, the writer tends to let British English writing style dominate - so while the story takes place mostly in London, I had trouble believing Ellie was actually from the States...even though her character often made fun of British English sayings. Putting aside my attention to this detail, the plotline was very interesting - not only is Ellie dealing with the sudden murder of her best friend, but she helps her friend's daughter with the loss as well as relives her recent past loss of a baby. Some parts got repetitive and drawn out too long in the middle, but the ending made me cry (which really isnt too hard to do).
