Thanks to Melissa of Chick Lit Central for adding her review of this book to Books You Loved. Without her recommendation I would not have been attracted to this book. The publisher's blurb doesn't really do it justice.
I found this book to be a moving exploration of how your childhood experiences can not only be remembered incompletely but also how families can be re-built. And how you can learn to deal with ambiguity in your life – Oh, heck, that's not captured it either.
The book is not perfect – there are one or two co-incidences too many and one or two of the characters are a bit one-dimensional. But it was a great read. I highly recommend it to anyone who comes from a difficult family dynamic – and isn't that just about everyone?
