I haven't finished the story yet (about 3/4 of the way through), but felt the need to write a review early. I disagree with the reviewer Sherry S. who says the writing is pedestrian. This is a well written book. I have a good grasp on vocabulary and still needed to look up a few words I was unfamiliar with. I like that the author didn't 'dumb down' her writing. The story is a little hard to follow at first as it jumps around in time (2005, 1913, 1975, etc.), but you get used it and are able to follow the flow of the story lines. I have my guess as to what the answer is to the mystery, but I am still interested in reaching the end/conclusion.
