    No Cohesiveness to this story

    I had a difficult time getting through this book. The main characters were extremely difficult to identify with. In the beginning, Alice is portrayed as a young girl taken advantage of by friends. Then suddenly as an adult (and also as a young girl later in the story) she is portrayed as extremely needy and manipulative, with no reason provided for her behavior. The book jacket tells us Del's friends see her facade crumbling, but she seems perfectly normal until she suddenly goes to a hotel room with a strange (devil?) man and throws herself out a window. Roxanne's motivations are constantly impossible to understand. The author suddenly throws her and Del's widowed husband into a potential romance with no build up or explanation. Her strange dinner encounter with Varick makes no sense, with the bird attack on her (forgotten???) afterwards. Romero has not created any new life for himself since being driven from the priesthood. Varick is never explained, and he simply disappears at the end. Additionally, every chapter title is written with a buildup to the baby Amber is expecting, so one is expecting the baby to have some unusual aspect or power--but nothing. This book would have been better if the author had chosen one or two strange subjects and just built on them. It is simply too busy with the end result a complete lack of cohesiveness. A very disappointing read.
