I have kind of a love-hate relationship with her books. Her writing is always gorgeous but I'm usually not drawn in. I'm pretty confident this will be the last book of hers I read, so I'm glad I enjoyed it as much as I did.

It's broken into three parts. The first part is told by Arlyn. She marries John and their marriage is pretty unhappy, but she gets two children out of it (Sam and Blanca). She and Sam are very close (Blanca only appears toward the end of the first part, so I don't mean to imply that she didn't love Blanca, too). The second part is told by Meredith, who comes to take care of Sam and Blanca. Sam is older and is a total handful; Blanca is one of those kids who tries very hard to please. The third part is told by Blanca, who is now in her 20s and lives in London.

It was a gorgeous book, although everyone was so unhappy, it was hard to read in parts.
