I can hardly put this book down, and like many others have already said, it's my first time reading this author. The characters are all so interesting, some charming and some very sad. I'll be looking for more books by this author, that's for sure.
I only have one minor complaint, and that's that I sometimes forget which character is related to whom, and I get them confused because one moment I'll think I'm reading about a daughter, when it's actually the mother, and sometimes I will forget which mom goes with which daughter.
But that's more of a memory thing with me rather than a problem caused by this excellent author.
