I had started this book a long time ago, and it just didn't hold me interested. One of the main characters, Thomas Jane, was also in her novel, 'The Weight of Water,' and he was rather enigmatic. This novel offers a little bit more of why he is the way he is. It was hard to get into, but I'm so glad I stuck it out, because the very last page brings everything stunningly together. I sat in bed just reeling, trying to piece together everything that I had read. What a story.
