I had never heard about this book or its author and picked it off the shelf just because the title and cover were intriguing. What a treasure it turned out to be! Now I am eager to read Bates' China Dog stories. She is a master of character development, which is a 'must' for me. I lived the novel as I read it it captivated me. I especially appreciated her subtleties and understated-ness. The reader needed to infer and read between the lines, often. I do agree with the previous reviewer, however,in that I felt unfulfilled at the end, not knowing what transpired in the years to come with the different family members.

I really enjoyed this. The writing was simple but beautiful. Annie lives in a restaurant with her parents. They have to work hard to make a living. Annie's future is their dream. Annie's mother is bored and lonely and develops a friendship with her stepson. Annie has friends at school and one of her friends died tragically. the only problem with this book is I would have like to learn more about Annie's future life.
