To say I was disappointed in the book would be an understatement.
Besides not liking the major characters, the other problem I had with the book is that some of the subjects the author brought up were not fleshed out enough. Why were the mothers of Sally and Clare the way they were? What exactly is Sally's daughter's problem? What was causing Ted's tremor? Also, she spent too much time on Clare's brothers but really didn't tell us anything about them. It almost seemed as if she added the brothers just to reach a word count.
I've read other reviews of this book and some people seem to really like it so I'm not going to say I don't recommend it. Reactions to books are such personal things that it's unfair to say that just because I don't like it you won't either. But, now you have my opinion.
