"I finished this several days ago, but the narrator hasn't left me yet. The book moves back and forth between the captured girls' and Jane's experiences; eventually the parallel worlds meet. Minot does a good job of capturing the tangential nature of thought entwined with life. I was struck how in the midst of tragedy, the mundane and profound coexist." Dec 26, 2014 08:09AM

This is an interesting book, not only for the tale and research, but for the meaning of deception. We all have secrets. How and why they are maintained is complex and Luxenberg does an excellent job of that undercurrent as well as discovering his aun ...more
