I could not put this book down------------A wonderful read!!
Altho it is a hardcover and very hard to read in bed-------somehow I managed
A very long, almost monumental book. It's about Madelilne from age 9-32. What happens to her at 9 is what she becomes. It is also about her family, her dad Jack, A Canadian Air Force Officer, his wife Mimi, an Acadian, therby sprinkling French phrases throughout the book, and her older brother Mike.It is also about Madeline's school chums and their combined school experiences. After about 400 pages I thought it should be over...but it goes on and on, kind of draggy until the last 25-50 pages where there is a total flip flop as vaious questions are answered and mysteries solved. A good read...revolves around child sexual abuse which in 2003 was still fresh enough to make it an Oprah's Book Club choice.
