Simone asked:

I just finished reading this book, and I am surprised that people are not annoyede that it ended without a resolution to ANY of the story lines. I must be missing something?

Kristin I had the same response. WHY would an author write a whole murder mystery and then not resolve it? I seriously was asking myself whether a chapter someone got ripped out of my book. The author did not write the story with an open ending, she literally just dropped the legal storyline completely. I've read thousands of books and have NEVER been so surprised that a storyline was simply dropped. Amazing book, and this aspect ruined the whole book experience (who reads 700+ pages of a story with no ending?!).
Lisa At first it bothered me, but I think she just had so many threads going. This was one conclusion. And life doesn't wrap up neatly.

I was more bothered by some of the rushed leaps of faith between Anna andJack than by the conclusion. And I did feel some of the storyline was real life, there was a lot of ambiguity that people had to accept. They had to move on or be trapped waiting indefinitely.
