A pretty awful story, actually. Everyone's family life implodes. Affairs, lies (to others and to self), regrets, manipulation. Yuck. But it all has a happy ending, so that makes it all right, right?

Set in Nantucket, but written by an Englishwoman, there are a few spots that don't quite ring true if you're familiar with British idioms. Not exactly distracting, but it supplied me with some "gotcha" moments as I listened. Wouldn't recommend it, but I'm sure some people would really like it.
