I was disappointed by this book. It certainly did not live up to his previous books. The main characters were not very interesting and although they went through some harrowing experiences it seemed distant and not very emotionally involving.
The story within the story was very interesting though and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of that period and especially women's roles in the early 20th century.
I didn't particularly care for the narrator. He seemed old and it didn't fit with the character he was narrating.
It still was a riveting listen that kept me interested through many long hours of cooking and housework!
