Well written but…
By Lady Sparhawk
This is a very well written book that drags us through a very disturbed series of relationships across years and years of misery. Every relationship described in this book whether between adults and adults or children and adults or children and children is very disturbed. Well, there are two exceptions but they are not central characters. I admit I couldn’t stop reading it but I didn’t like the people, well with the exception of Peter. I didn’t like the people. It’s a book full of mistakes and painful returns to mistakes and it just isn’t my kind of book.
Took me a bit to get into it, but once I did…. Great writing, great characters and loved the ending that left us all wondering.
I think a negative review is more appropriate for this smut! Written child pornography and grooming is what this sample shows what is inside this book.
I felt the book lacked finality. I enjoyed the book, however, I was left wanting more out of the ending. It was as though the author said “Alright, that’s enough. Leave the rest to the reader”
Couldn’t put it down
Couldn’t put it down, desperately wanted to know the ending but did not want the book to end. I loved it.
I suppose if you can get past the casual adultery to the memories of childhood sexual abuse, you might enjoy this book. I tolerated this book as long as I could before quitting it.
The various characters past and present contributed to complex family relationship. How children become who they are, with the choices parents make.
I spent so much time reading this thinking there must be a poetic end . However, it turns out that it was just a series of diary entries with no point.
Reminiscent of the movie “Bridges of Madison County”. Great writing.
Beautiful, descriptive prose layered over deep family secrets
This is a story of a complicated family with many skeletons in the closet. Very beautiful prose.
