Amanda Jimenez (whispering_lilac) | 70 comments Though I have been married myself for close to 18 years, I think that it will be a wistful read. It has been on my "Want to Read" shelf for a while, so time to pick it up.

Jenna (jennywatts) Amanda, you are right to be a bit wary. It is a bit dark! I have always wanted to read a Claire Messud book and this is the first one I managed to finish after two attempts with two of her other novels. I believe it is worth a read, and I'd love to hear what you think. I was very into the book until the end, and it is suspenseful and compelling until then, but it left me a little unsatisfied at the conclusion. I don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil anything. Let me know your thoughts if you read it!
