I have recommended this book to my book club because of the writing. The story involved strong resourceful women at different times in history. The connection between women and families across generations was compelling.
I just loved Bettie and Charlie. They were both such strong characters and I loved their conviction to what was right so ahead of their time.
Oh Yes!! I wanted to drive around and around in my car and travel back to 1935.
I do not know who would enjoy this book. The story was unorganized, boring, and slow.
There needed to have been a story line. The author seemed to have just focused on random thoughts she tried to tie together through the lives of 2 characters.
Ha. All of them
I am sorry I wasted an audible.com credit and my time.
I gaveit on star because I couldn't figure out how to give it -5!!!! This is probably the worst book I have read in 20 years. The writing is shallow and the topic of contemporary teenage issues was apparently very poorly researched thus presented in the story. Seems like the writer just wanted to write for shock value. The book is a waste of time, money, and effort.
Very disappointed in this book. Conroy tried to add every dysfunctional story line every imagined into one book. Don't waste your time on this disappointment!
