    Liz and Sarabeth were childhood neighbors, brought as close as sisters by the suicide of Sarabeth's mother when the girls were just 16. In the decades that followed - through Liz's marriage and Sarabeth's attempts to make a happy life for herself - their relationship remained a source of continuity and strength. But when Liz's adolescent daughter enters dangerous waters that threaten to engulf the family, the fault lines in the women's friendship are revealed.

    "Boring and depressing"
    Overall

    I agree with the other reviewers who felt that it was depressing, boring and hard to keep listening to. I also kept thinking there must be more to the story, but there never was. I don't think there was even one character in the book who wasn't unhappy. I wish I hadn't wasted my time finishing the book.

    Bartolomeo di Crespi is the acclaimed interior decorator of Our Lady of Fatima, New Jersey. To date, Bartolomeo has hand-selected every chandelier, sconce, and ottoman in OLOF, so when the renovation of the local church is scheduled, he assumes there is only one man for the job.

    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    I loved this book, but it's not for everybody. It's about a funny, Italian family in New Jersey, with the 40 year old interior decorator son as the narrator and main character. I thought that the dialogue was very funny, and touching at times. But there is a lot of description of interior design, the fabrics, decor, etc. I loved the descriptions, but as I said, not everyone would enjoy them.
