    About 15 pages into this book, I wasn't sure I was going to finish it. Not because it wasn't intriguing, just because I wasn't sure I was mentally capable. The book has an actual rhythm to it which takes some getting used to but once you do, its well worth the effort. <BR/><BR/>We all have moments in our lives that have shaped which paths we take and ultimately change our destinies. This book explores this in a beautiful and touching way. As an old woman bedridden and dying, Ann Lord examines her life as she slips in and out of mental clarity. The 'what if' as it pertains to a single weekend in Ann's life leads the reader through decades of pain, love, shame, and ultimately happiness. <BR/><BR/>Overall I found this book to be a good read and one I enjoyed much more after I was finished and able to reflect on its impact on my own life. This is definitely a book that demands your attention and a little work but I found it extremely rewarding.

    Outstanding! I couldn't put it down.

    This book was has been a long time since I have read a book from cover to cover without putting it down! A deeply touching story about reflecting on one's life and love.

    Ending was a complete let down

    The beginning and middle of this novel was great but the ending was a complete let down. It seemed like the author ran out of steam and just wrote a quick, disappointing ending. The movie was just as bad.

    I liked this book. I thought it was a little depressing - I guess the take home message is that one never really is happy with how one ends up?? I'm not sure. It was definitely a good read, though, and made me think. I think it's a good beach/vacation read.
