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'm really glad I continued to the end. After a while I stopped being confused and started getting sucked into the story. I found I liked the characters, who seemed believable to me, and the plot was complex enough to keep me turning the pages. I figured out the secret a ways before the end, but was fascinated by how it was revealed. While not the best book I've ever read, it was certainly worth finishing.
Not all the characters are equally well developed - I didn't feel I knew Eleanor well at all - but the story truly kept my attention to the very last page.

One note: where the author mentions her kids, the word is anecdote, not antidote. A small slip!
