I’m not sure how to comment on this book. I really liked parts of it, but didn’t love the book as a whole and would give it 3.5 stars, a bit above average. My heart went out to Claire, the main character, and all the heart break she has suffered over the years. But Claire’s character remained nebulous for me. In fact, I felt the author left too many questions unanswered about many characters and situations. While I enjoyed reading the book, I wanted to like it more than I did.
