I finished it because I read it as part of a book club. The author did a great job creating a self-centered, shallow character (Jessie) for which I had absolutely no sympathy or empathy for. Couple that with some completely absurd and ridiculously bogus legends and plants and, well . . . you get the idea. I also believe the author had her head in the thesaurus too often with descriptions like âsoup skimâ to describe a foggy day.
