This is a perfectly wonderful story about three friends who meet when they are very young and stay by one another as their lives and perspectives change dramatically over time. The narrative gives the reader perspectives from each about the same incidents in the history of the world at, then coping with the aftermath of war and in their own personal lives. Beyond being an engaging story, it is beautifully written.

I must be the only person that read this book that thought it boring. I did not like how it went back and forth in diffrent time periods. The ending was so so.

    To below (RANDOMNESS QUESTS)

    Read my post at random second result. It was an honest mistake. Stop being rude, please. I should call you a name back... but I won't. I tend to be more respectful, and you... call me names for simply making a small mistake. I did NOT do that on purpose, fyi. SORRY BOUT THAT GUYS! :3 Anyway... QUEST ONE: 'frogclan' result twelve QUEST TWO: sorry, there is a small mistake. Read my post at 'random' second result, the quest is at 'portal' first result. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING! :) ~RaNdOmNeSs_QuEsT~

    Bad...

    I bought this book after "The Help". I anticipated a different writing style, I loved the different views "The Help" provided and maybe that's why I hated this book. Anyways there are these painful descriptions that are unbelievable and unnecessary. I couldn't finish it.. and it was sad and unhappy and a bring me down. BLAH!!

    There is no plot to this book at all. It simpy follows the day to day life of three women. At the beginning of each chapter, it tells you what month and year the chapter covers and whose point of view it is from, but within each chapter, there will be flashbacks. With no lead in or ending. It seems like stream of conscioiusness writing, with little editing. Cannot finish this book. Halfway through and I give up.
