This book is very long, but I hated for it to end. Interesting storyline, is actually 6 separate stories that start and end as one. Tales of a mother and her 5 daughter are individual, yet woven together so well!

When I started the book I was really impressed with the history of the family..Mom, Dad then having their 5 girls with one boy passing away..I enjoyed that each sister had their reason for leaving their small town, we all want to do that some time in our live. What I really had trouble with was that EACH sister, I mean each one had horrible experiences, bad marriages, affairs, death of children, and so on and so on. It truly made me want to stop reading! I felt like I wanted to jump out a window! Not every kid that leaves their home completely ruins their life! But I kept reading and realized yea we all come home, I know I did..but it was too predictable that each sister came home exactly within days or months of each other and the only thing that made them sane was their Mother and the river..okay it could happen..but NONE of them had a good life unless they were home? I’m glad I read and listened to it but I seriously could have written the same story with a bit more realism behind it. I recommend it for a lot of things but if you don’t like sad almost every page, don’t listen.
