At first, I didn't really care for this book at all. It started out SO similarly to _The Secret Life of Bees_ with a daughter feeling responsible for a parent's death. And though the narrator was older, there was a lot of similarity between the two. But, as the novel progressed, it grew to be separate from the first. It became a novel more like Jodi Picoult's - some chapters told by different characters and a revelation at the end. I will continue to watch for this author, because as a whole this novel was good. Maybe I would have enjoyed this more had I not just finished _The Secret Life of Bees_....
