Plusses: good exploration of the subject, some interesting changes among some of the characters. Makes you think about ways in which people can change...and not.

Minuses: Redundancy and fluff. I nearly put the book down during the first chapter with the endless sappy waxing on about the idyllic relationship of Ethan and Jorie. It was so overdone it got irritating. More of that comes from time to time throughout the book, and I swear if there was one more mention of the lilies, it would have to be refiled as a botany book, but with some skimming here and there, I kept on til the end.

Overall, ok read, but it's probably turned me off from being too interested in reading her other books.
