This is a fast, enjoyable read that could have been much better if the characters had been fleshed out more. The plot is fairly predictable, as is the connection between the two women it centers around. What made it stand out for me was the settings, the descriptions of San Francisco in the early 1900s and the suburbs of Connecticut in the 1960s. The insight into grief and the way people react to it were good and I would have liked to have more of that and less of the unhappy housewife plot. Worth reading, just don't expect something exceptional.
