This book had a slow begining and an eventfull(but unexplained) middle and then nothing.
I was disappointed with this book as the book built up quite slowly and there was a shocking event and then it just seemed to flag off and finish. The plot was a good one however very predictable and when the event does happen we are given no details what so ever which I felt was a real chance for Quindlen to develop the story, but Anna Quindlen failed to Nail the story and just seemed to lose interest in the book towards the end. I would not pick up another one of her books as this was enough for me. Three star read.
