Lauren asked:

I'm only 16 pages in, but I'm confused by this book. Emma is 41 years old? But has been married for 27 years? And attended Mount Holyoke? Which must have happened while she was married (because she must have married at age 14)? I've reread these passages because I think I'm messing something up, but I cannot figure this out. I love the writing style, but keep having to stop and reread - not enjoyable.

Lauren Now I've finished the book, but still have no answer on Emma's age. I can only assume it's a miscalculation, and will be corrected in the final printing? (I'm reading a pre-pub).
