I just finished the book, so I'm too moved to write much. So I'll just say that if you love dramas with great depth, honesty, and levels of uncertainty that you leave you wondefully guessing at the outcome, you'll be hard pressed to find a better book in any way. The narrator was so good that I kept looking to see if there was more than one narrator. I'm still doubtful :). This is simply one of the best books I've ever read or listened to. It has a small amount of sex, but it isn't graphic just necessary to the plot. I say that as an erotica fan, but this book did not leave me wanting in any way. I want more of this one. Enjoy.

Narrator Adjoa Andoh is fantastic!

The story is good, the portrayal of layered and conflicting emotions nicely done, but the narrator is fantastic. She IS the characters. I was not aware of the narrator making an effort to "sound like" different characters, I heard their voices. Flawless.
