For a lawyer. Ms. Fortin sure paints our heroine in an incompetent light. Has Claire ever heard of a camera? Shes a lawyer for sugars sake!! Pictures, take a flipping picture!!! EVIDENCE!! I know that Brits can be naive compared to Americans however, is it not obtaining Evidence that is the #1 essential in being an attorney!?!? Good book though. Narrator could be less monotone at times but generally a good read. Ms. Fortin's others are way better though :)

Marianne has a life others dream of. A beautiful townhouse on the best street in the neighbourhood. Three bright children who are her pride and joy. Sometimes her past still hurts: losing her mother early, growing up in foster care. But her husband, Simon, is always there. A successful surgeon, he’s the envy of every woman they’ve ever met. Flowers, gifts, trips to France: nothing is too good for his family. Then Simon says another woman’s name. The way he lingers on it, Caroline, gives Marianne a shudder of suspicion, but she knows it’s nothing - she can’t entertain this flash of paranoia.

is this supposed to be our heroine? in my opinion, she deserves everything she gets for being so pathetic and needy and naive. I suppose that must just be a posh British female stereotype but it's very sad. I couldn't even finish it!

As her mother's trial looms, with Milly as the star witness, Milly starts to wonder how much of her is nature, how much of her is nurture, and whether she is doomed to turn out like her mother after all.

I firmly believe that if someone is that stupid to wind up marrying someone after a one night stand, that she deserves all that comes her way! if it weren't for the baby, I'd have been rooting for the bad guy. TERRIBLE character. makes you hate her and her stupid choices!

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: They become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease.

Marin Ireland is just perfect in her many adaptations of Appalachia accents. And you can be prepared that Owen King will definitely wield the pen as mightily as his dear old dad. Well done y'all!
