I picked this book up in the local library off the shelf that the librarians use to "spotlight" certain books. The story sounded intriguing so I picked it up and gave it a try.

I like books that describe the complex relationships among family members, and in that regard, I would rate this book very high. However, Miller seems to try very hard to cram a lot of complicated story lines into this book, and so some of the details are lost while others are way too descriptive (the relationship between Daisy and Duncan was explicit to say the least, and the age difference between the two and their connections to other characters just made it too disturbing for me).

Miller glosses over the plots for other characters, like Emily and Theo. I felt like they got a bit short-changed by this... though I understand that had the author gotten into the details of their lives in addition to those of Eva, Mark, and Daisy this novel would have been far longer.
