Never thought I would enjoy this book from the write up. It really seemed like a "womens book" ladies don't take this the wrong way but it is a type of book that would appeal to women.
Maybe that statement wasn't fair. I REALLY enjoyed the book regardless of my statement.
I have even bought a copy of the hardback and many friends have borrowed it and enjoyed it as much as I did. I will say it is a little depressing and heavy on the heart as the story progresses . I recommend it to adults only because of the sensitive issues.
Thanks audible for making this available to listeners.

The listener is carefully led through a complex plot which is revealed in an unexpected and effective manner and only fully, with penultimate sacrifice, at the end of the story. Fully developed, realistic characters and setting portray a world where individual actions and avoiding truth have bold consequences. This intertwined and unpredictable story, focusing on two women and two girl-children flows well over a twenty-year time frame.

I enjoyed this story although truth be told I only chose it for the performance if Blair Brown. The way the book is written with perspectives constantly changing, time zone being run back and forward. It's intriguing
Nevertheless, this book had me from the start, with its easily weaving storyline this is a story not just restricted to it's time.
This was an interesting novel. There were many twists in this tale and many secrets between family. The narration was good, however the way the book was structured, it may have been easier to follow if I was actually reading the book. The story was told from several different perspectives and listening to the audio it was sometimes difficult to figure out who was "speaking" ar the time.
