Is a plot driven story- most stories written (and read today) are character driven. As a result, it seems slow- however I did like how each characters lives and the timeline is wound together in an unexpected way.

The author depicts the mysterious twists of fate and coincidences that bring people together and the self-doubts and lack of communication that can keep them apart. This novel reads almost like a travelogue, full of detailed descriptions of three of my favorite places, Greece, Scotland, and Greenwich Village New York,---maybe thats way I enjoyed it so much! This book is written in three parts, each narrated with a different point of view, but nobody named "June!" Great for book clubs.

This book is set in Greece, Scotland, Greenwich Village and Long Island. It traces the members of a Scottish family as they confront the joys and betrayals of love. It is a selection of Good Morning America's "Read This!" book club and is a National Book Award Winner. I enjoyed this book very much. It's a good read.

Some books are so good that you can't put them down. This book was not one of them. I made it through the first chapter, hoping it would get better. I was disappointed. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Don't waste your time.

The story takes place over varied places (New York, Greece and Scotland) and involves
family members over time and much about the love and longings. Glass does a nice job
of engaging the reader I think. Enjoyable!
