I loved this story of complex women and their relationships with each other and their families. Each character was so well written and deeply developed. I would find myself empathizing with Ruth and then the next chapter completely understanding where Millie was coming from. I also thought the stories of Arietta and Lillian added so much to the novel. I think this book would make a marvelous book club selection as there is so much to discuss. This was most surely a five star read for me. It made me search out the author's previous novel to add to my reading pile.
I received this book courtesy of St. Martin's Press through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
