Roberts has written a multi-layered book that twists and turns like a mountain road. Each chapter has a new - and unexpected - revelation that will keep the reader turning pages to find out not only what the author will reveal next, but what the characters will do with the new information. None of the revelations are contrived or convenient, all make sense within the context of the story.
This is a well written book about love, loss, redemption, and parenthood. Rivers intertwines her characters like a helix and slowly unveils the truth about each one. For instance, Debbie, Stephanie's mother, continues to embarrass her daughter at every turn just as she did when Stephanie was growing up. In the capable hands of Roberts, Debbie, like the other characters, is a complicated character who, in the end, is revealed to be flawed, yes, but also deeper than what she appears to be on the surface.
Roberts doesn't waste words in her writing. She uses words wisely to reveal her characters and her story. For instance, she writes, "The greedy monster that was time ate up their friendship . . . ." This image of time as a "greedy monster" reveals so much about friendship in general and the friendship of Stephanie and Paula. Nicely done.
This is one of those books that sneaks up on the reader. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, it doesn't shout at you, nor does it hit you over the head. It is, however, well written and in a quiet way, the characters and their story will stay with you long after you finish the book and put it aside.
Each woman has lived the past twenty five years not living the lives they should have. Will they finally be able to live the life they both deserve?
This is Ann Roberts best book since Brilliant and Furthest from the Gate. A most enjoyable romance with a nice storyline.
