So depressing I wasn't sure if I really wanted to finish this book, but I slogged through just to see if there was anything redeeming in the final chapter. What great reviews but great disapointment. The characters, except for Lili, were quite boring, no life, no depth, no soul. All the characters were bland, one dimensional and depressing. They didn't like anyone else, they used each other, they schemed against one another but in ways that the reader knew they would; they were pitiful. Margaret was bland and couldn't make a decision if her life depended on it. Mrs. Monroe was an old biddy that surprisingly showed just a bit of compassion. Lili tied it up just enough at the end that there was some resolution. If this is what we were supposed to get out of this novel, then the author succeeded, but it was a long, boring trip. I received this book from GoodReads in exchange for an honest opinion.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was a very interesting book with just enough twists and secrets to keep you guessing.
I loved the different views provided by each of the voices - you truely felt they were different people writing. Even though you knew the ending of story after reading the first of the trilogy, it was still interesting to see the world from their perspective.
