I honestly WANTED to read this book but 30 pages in, I was bored & confused & couldnt care. It sounded like a good book but to me, the premise was way better than the start. I was bored & so I quit reading. The writing style sucked & I do mean was very badly written, to the point that I had to go back to the book cover to make sure this was a book I wanted to read. Over & Over & over again. To the point where I realized this was a book that was not as good as its description made it sound. Maybe I missed a good book but I let this book go after 30-60 pages & I do not miss having read it!

I loved "Stones from the River," but haven't found another Hegi book to equal that one. This book is adequately written and the characters' descriptions are present; however, I didn't find the plot to be easily understood and certainly not memorable. There simply are too many questions that went unanswered. By the conclusion of the book, I was barely skimming to finish it . Perhaps the standard by which I measure Ursula Hegi has been set too high given the connection I felt to "Stones from the River." This is an average book in my estimation.

This is the 2nd book from this author that I have read. Her writing style is very different and can be hard to follow but it is worth it in the end. I never expected the story to have the tweist it did in the end.

A good read, though not on par with The Vision of Emma Blau or Stones from the River.

This book had so much promise, it was narrarated well, the storyline seemed great, but boy did it disappoint. It did not flow, it would end chapters mid thought, is went on and on forever on the mundane. I really was disappointed in what I felt was a waste of a great storyline.
