"In simple yet eloquent style, Shreve portrays the arc of a complicated romantic relationship, from infatuation to betrayal. What's more, she builds in a palpable sense of suspense as well as a deep empathy for human frailty. The ever-skillful Shreve delivers yet another gripping read that will satisfy her many fans and earn her some new ones." (Booklist)

Another stellar performance from Anita Shreve, who never dissappoints, with her incsiive insights into family relationships and rich, evocative sense of place.
At first I found the music a little intrusive and ominous but then I gradually warmed to the concept as it mirrored the various heartbreaking dysfunctions throughout the story.
A very sad tale of pain and loss but redemptive at the end. As I said it was heartbreaking but I stayed up nearly all night to finish.

not as gripping and complex as earlier Anita Shreve titles. She is usually one of my favorite authors. Quite predictable. I felt like she threw this together almost as an after thought. She even mentioned someone running the Boston Marathon "on a whim", obviously not researching it properly and finding that to enter Boston you must run a qualifying time in the previous 12 months....If you haven't read any of her previous work, download those before this one, they are all much better
