I was intrigued by the mother-daughter-sister-grandmother theme, and hoped for a good read, but the book was flat and sluggish, the characters mostly unrelatable, the plot tricked out with awful gimmicks like a motorcycle-riding lion. That Harriet could have written 6 highly-acclaimed novels that were the subject of scholarly attention before becoming a recluse lacked all credibility, and despite good parts in the beginning (at the Home and the asylum), I found that the book lacked texture or movement -- perhaps because all the characters except Tilton were mired in past grievances.
As for the narration, whoever voiced Harriet had an annoying wheedly voice, and was completely out of her depth when required to speak in a man's voice. Terrible. I wanted to rip the headphones off. The others were fine.
