Belva Plain has been writing novels for a long time. Unfortunately, this one didn't hold my attention and I found myself putting the book down frequently for lack of interest. The author has many good novels to her credit but this wasn't one of them.
This is the first Belva Plain novel that I've read since one of her first ones "Evergreen". I was NOT disappointed. Some authors do NOT "age" well. They tend to really slack off as the years go by. Belva Plain does NOT (happily) fall into that category.
