I had wanted to like this book and this character but found the plot a little unbelievable and disjointed.
I am not usually shy about giving up on a book if I don't like it but in this case I did finish because I wanted to know what happened in the end.
Bloom did not waste a page - the writing remained cohesive and descriptive with no unnecessary flourishes, just like the characters.
I think that Amy Bloom is first a reader then an author. Every character Lillian encounters has their own story and, bravo Amy, you get to hear it! Such. A great book!Published 28 days ago by CMCK
I really, really thought I would love this book. The summary sounded fascinating and I was quickly pulled in by Bloom's writing. She has a poetic voice that I found hypnotic. Read morePublished 1 month ago by WestMetroMommy

Not one of her best - I didn't find her characters relateable.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
The story does not seem to take hold until midway through the novel. At about that same point Bloom's writing style becomes especially impressive. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sharon Rose
Totally engrossing novel. Yes, it's historical,but the characters are rather contemporary in their depiction and world view. Read morePublished 2 months ago by S. Donohue
