This book is a pastiche of different literary genres - I think. I could not find any saving graces. The monotonous narration rounded out a waste of an Audible credit!
This is a luminescent work. It unfolds layer after layer. You think you have it and suddenly the story becomes something entirely different. It resolves in a most satisfactory way no thread left unpulled. Great work.
Easy to listen to, entertaining - a new book to add to my favorites! Will go find other Kate Morton titles and hope they are to be as prized!
This well written novel weaves together multiple time periods, life stories, and "mysteries" with well developed characters, plausible twists and turns, and great intrigue. I didn't want this story to end; I hated to part with the characters!
This book has a complex plot that involves some flash backs back and forth. There are many characters but it is very well written. Interesting story. Full of life. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I am so glad I downloaded this book, while it wasn't that deep it was a thoroughly enjoyable tale. I liked all 3 heroines, the story wasn't too predictable, and the pace moved along just fine for me. I plan to download Ms. Morton's earlier book since I liked this one so much. A definite recommend from me!
This was a good book. the only problem was with each chapter, you were thrust into another decade or life... it was very disconcerting to be gracefully coasting along in a gracious decade, only to be wrenched from it at the next chapter, over and over and over. I loved the characters but surely a more seamless trip over time could have been achieved in some way.
this book did not captivate my attention at any time. It was written at a level which did not deserve to be rated as it was. A great disappointment
I really enjoyed this book. Caroline Lee did a great job narrating as well. The book easily flows between three different time periods - this is not easy to do and many authors don't do it well.
