The writing is great but the only character I liked was Julia’s father-in-law. But Segal’s writing kept me reading until the end, and that says a lot. If I can’t relate to characters in some way, I often stop reading. And yet a week after finishing the book I find myself hoping that despite all the problems, they all “ended up living happily ever after.”
