i was given this book as a gift from a member of my family and what a gift it was. i couldnt put the book down i wanted to figure out what had happend to this family that started out just so sweet and innocent and perfect. what i like about it is that it is a retelling from the story from the leads point of view and how we saw her mother's mental descent though her eyes. although there were some parts that switched the charactors point of view and that confused me at first. a great read perfect for people who like mysteries because you will be guessing till the very end what happened

A story of post partum depression with a horrific outcome. The story is heart wrenching; however, I did not enjoy it. Was it simply the subject matter? Possibly. The story is told in flashbacks, by the lone survivor, and the writing is decent. Are the characters memorable? Unfortunately, I would have to say no. After some time, they have begun to fade from my mind. ----- I recommend to those interested in the subjects of post partum depression and survivor's guilt.

This book made the reader a part of the family. The descriptions made the reader feel as if they were seeing what was going on and know the people of the story. With the love this family had for eachother, to the problems they faced, made it so that a reader could not put the book down. The story told in this book, could be related to just about any family, and any person. The more you read, the more you wanted to know.

This book had everything that one could want in a novel. The writing was beautiful as you are drawn into this family and become one of it's members. The author has a great understanding of a family in crisis and describes the events in a way that prevents you from putting this book down. The dynamics of the characters are colorful, loving and tragic all at the same time. I believe there is a little of this family in most families. Great read for bookclubs!!

Although very disturbing in content, a real page turner. Haunting to say the least. This book will stay with me forever.
