(the author revealed at the end of this disappointing book that while she was writing it, her husband suffering from dementia, was failing, and eventually died. definitely a time to be compassionate. still, I stand by my review below)
very disappointed. love her books but this one had a lot of white spaces, blank pages, and repetitions. more a novella or even a short story. I noticed lots of phrases, sentences and ideas from her former books. half way thru the book, I found I could scan many paragraphs which were fillers. I love her books but this didn't feel like the quality i'm used to from her. Had a hard time finishing but the last chapter was interesting.
