I was entranced with this story until the very end. The writing was great. The author's descriptions and comparisons were unique and exacting. Her words made it easy to conjure this miserable little family and their run-down world. The method of weaving today with events 25 years earlier kept you wanting more without the frustration of being "strung-along". Her use of the "Kill Club" was an interesting way to move the main charactor along.
Obviously, a different ending. What a DISAPPOINTMENT! I felt like the author just suddenly gave up on her reader (listener) and shoveled out a solution. I'm sorry, but Patty and I are nearly the same age and I grew up in the mid-west. ***SPOILER*** The creepy loan officer from a rural Kansas bank .... no way he would have this solution ... no way ..... ridiculous..... and what a painful to go .... Patty had 4 kids, 3 of them little girls between 7 and 11 years old ..... no way. I felt very let down, especially having invested so much time and having recommended to several others as one of the best audio books (among dozens) I have listened to. Now I have to recant!
