Alice McDermott writes beautifully and the story keeps the reader engaged.
I liked some of her other works very much This one seemed a bit thin in plot and character development in comparison.
When I finished this book, I started to read it again because I wanted to see what I had missed the first time.

I agree with most of the praises of McDermott's book; however, the central character Marie is so thoroughly unlikeable that the book was a bit of a misery to read.Published 18 days ago by Hyacinth Bucket
