    "Moves too slow"

    Despite the fact that I usually really enjoy Jane Green's novels, I couldn't get into this one. As usual with her fiction, the pace is slow and more character-driven -- but these characters didn't appeal to me at all, and the only one I felt some interest in was the one who died at the start of the novel.

    "Consistently Intruiging"

    Jane Green always develops the characters so well. I expected this book to be more dreary, but it was lovely. A lot more occurs within the story than you anticipate. Good listen.

    "Boring!"

    Don't waste a credit. I just couldn't get into this one and slept through a lot of it.

    "If it hadn't been for book club..."

    If it hadn't been for book club, I never would have finished listening to this book. The story was not that interesting, and there was not a single character that made me root for her/him. I just didn't care what happened to them. Yawn.
