I have enjoyed reading many of Anita Shreve's books, and I am sorry to say that this book could not hold my interest. I started skimming pages, and then flipping through pages. Finally I did read the last, Part Seventeen, in it's entirety. It did not do enough for me to understand the total book. I do think that giving the gist of their earlier experiences at the beginning, then all in between, and then finish the book with the last of the beginning would have been a better way to go. Just saying ....

A difficult beginning to this book, and a surprising ending. Looks at a relationship at ages 52, 26 and 17.

Very sensitively written and so soppy I could not resist.

Wonderfully creative story-telling. This is one surprise ending you just don't see coming.
