“A gifted storyteller...her characters are intelligent, brave, and witty...human and real.”
—Susan Isaacs, New York Times Book Review

Good Read

Very surprised at now much I enjoyed this novel. Loved the fictional world of women thru the decades and the twists and turns their lives go thru.

Gossip

In the past I have enjoyed Beth Gutcheons writing but this one put me to sleep. I finally gave up and I never give up on books. It just didn't seem to get any more interesting as I read on. I was about 200 pages in. By then it should have sparked some interest but unfortunately it didn't.

Slow, boring

I wanted to like this book, but I didn't. At all. It was slow, boring, and several hours of my life that I'll never get back. :(
