This book is about friendship and love, but I can't help but feel that it could have been tighter, and that there are just too many characters. Nadine's husband Jude was featured prominently in the novel early on as you get flashbacks to the childhood but his fate, along with their earliest daughter Angela played a major part in the decision that lead to the secret later, as well as relationship with her best friend Ruby, and their later estrangement. And there are just too many kids and grandkids to keep track, not to mention Autumns brothers and sisters, their husbands, hospital staff, and more. Keeping track of a dozen characters are tricky.
On the other hand, both Nadine and Autumn came across as real people with emotions that range from shock to dismay to doubt to hope and more as revelations kept piling onto each other. If you can, buy this book. You'll probably shed a few tears.
I don't often take the time to write a review, but this book touched me deeply. I think it was because it contains such a deep honesty about the joy and struggle of marriage, about the love, and occasionally dislike, between siblings, and about the secrets that can live in the cracks of all that we call family. Children of any age can have difficulty realizing that their parents have had lives and histories independent of their children. Learning this can be hard, especially when there are painful secrets involved.
Many of us lose our parents before we get the chance to learn all we'd like to know about their lives before we came along, and for those people, this book may have a special poignancy. Read and enjoy, and don't be surprised if a few tears sneak out whole you're reading. And if you are so blessed as to have your parents still around, you may want to call or visit them. Those stories won't keep forever.
