Lesley Sharp was a wonderful narrator and brought the story to life and was able to emote the confusion and anger the main character feels throughout the story as she is trying to save her family and when she realizes just who is guilty in this story and who remains innocent.
This was not a book for me. I had seen so many good reviews that I felt it had to be good. Sadly, I did not think that was the case. The book was far too long for my liking. I understand the reason for going so far back but there were so many details that could have been left out - maybe two or three periods skipped in order to move the story along. I appreciated the creativity that went into the story such as creating the relationship history and all the moments where bits of truth came out.
