When I first read the synopsis for this book, I was excited to read this story. Unfortunately, this book was a big disappointment to me. The main character, Betsy, just didn't seem believable to me. The author spent alot of time describing Betsy's thoughts and emotions, but she still seemed so plastic. I thought the supporting characters were more well written than the main character (who hasn't had a rude, controlling neighbor like Marianne?). Also, the plot line didn't flow well for me. The chapters alternated between present day and past scenes, but they weren't put together in a cohesive way. I do have another one of Cammie McGovern's books, I hope I will be able to appreciate that one more than I did this particular book.
