Review:
Whipple never disappoints. Once again, I found myself very much immersed in one of her stories, and out of the books by her that I have read, this is definitely my favorite.

I really enjoyed the themes of family and marriage and the questions around those themes that were brought up in this book. I also loved reading about the characters, particularly the two main women; I thought it was so fascinating how different they were, how they interacted with each other and how differently they looked at the world.

What I love so much about Whipple's books is how easy it is to get invested in the story and I think there's something about the way she writes and the characters she conjures that's excellent at making you feel.

For now, I've given this 4 stars, but it might actually be more of a 5 star read on reflection, because I adored this.
