I really was not looking forward to reading this for my book club. I tried to talk them into reading something else, but each time I picked this book up I was drawn into the story. In Ms. Didon's year of grief I found similarities to things I did when my father died. This is a quick read, my only complaint is she mentions people in the story and the reader has no idea who they are or how they relate to the other characters. If she had just said my brother-in-law, Quitana's cousin or something to give the reader a clue. If I had read some of her other books maybe I would have a clue, but I have not so I was clueless.
