I was in the midst of enjoying this book when it suddenly and without warning ended. It leaves many things unsettled or unexplained and I was very dissatisfied. The reader has a lovely voice and I did enjoy listening to her.
Way up there!
Enzo, the dog.
I was skeptical when I heard the dog tells this story but with an open mind I listened. I grew to love that dog, although at times his story was so sad. Such a wonderful book but hard to read because it is so heart wrenching.
Nothing, it's just not my kind of story.
He almost mumbled.
Not my cup of tea! Before anyone starts sending hate mail, please understand, the book is well written, I (meaning ME, my opinion) just hated the story. In regard to the characters, I'm not sure who the protagonist or the antagonists are but I hated Tom! and Hannah! Truth be told I don't like reading any book that is so overwrought with sadness as to make ripping my own heart out and shredding it with my fingernails seem preferable, but I digress. I have five kids, so yea... I'm a Mom. I thought Hannah was selfish to demand the return of Lucy/Grace without thought for what it was putting the child through. I also thought Tom was selfish for agreeing and then, in order to quell his own guilty conscience, destroying just about everybody's lives. Something akin to confessing an affair for no other purpose than making yourself feel better. Isabel was the easiest for me to forgive, losing 3 babies and then having one appear almost magically. It would be real easy to convince yourself it was a gift from God and surely meant to be.
