I just finished this book; it was a quick read, but really didn't capture my attention. If I hadn't finished it I wouldn't have missed not knowing the whole story.

I feel the characters were not fully developed. I didn't care that I didn't know the characters fully because they didn't interest me all that much. Though I did like Evelyn Edge-the woman that moved into Ruthie and Julia's house after they moved out.

It is an ok summer read-not a total waste of time, but if you don't get to finish it, you didn't miss much.

I thought the story line was interesting and I liked how it spanned 20 years. However, the first third of the book, especially, seemed to draaaaggg on. It seemed the author had to explain every single reference she made and provide every detail ad nauseum. I doubt I will read any of her other books.

I liked this book, but I had trouble paying attention most of the time. It didn't stir anything.

Great story about sisters who face an awful tragedy at a young age and how it affects their lives. Quick read, hard to put down.
