The author has a gift for beautiful and poetic phrasing, somewhat reminiscent of Alice Hoffman/s magical writing, but for some reason, I could not sustain interest in the story line or characters. The plot line dragged, lost in too much mundane detail, and the dark , dreary background made it a depressing read. I had trouble forming an attachment to the characters and had little sympathy for their situations. I rarely give up on a book, but half way thorough, I gave up on this one.....and did not feel guilty like I normally would. I wanted to like this book and but found it lacking and depressing. Try Alice Hoffman, Sarah Addison Allen, and Ann Patchette. They keep yourWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
