SPOILER ALERT: The title of the book is like an inside joke; you'll see what I mean when you read this novel.
Ms. Shreeve knows how to build character profiles and back stories and integrate them almost seamlessly into the present narrative. She brings you into the marriage between the pilot and his wife to the extent that I almost felt like a voyeur at times. The emotions are powerful and poignant. I teared up, laughed out loud, and got indignant on behalf of the pilot's wife - that's ho much I was drawn into this story.
A great book and one you will never want to lend out!
Some reviewers have said the plot was weak... I didn't notice, as the emotions were so very real. Some say it was a slow read... not to me. I was captured by the process and resonated with the wife's journey. There is not room enough to list all the points where I said to myself, "Yes, that describes it perfectly." Suffice to say, I was fascinated at the truth of her descriptions. A very finely crafted, truthful portrayal of the betrayal and loss I felt. Brava!
While I was touched by this book, it was obvious that the impact of the crash would force me to take a more dramatic view of the story. I couldn't help but wonder how the survivors were coping with such a shattering experience.
Hopefully, none of survivors were having to discover that their loved ones were living a double life like the wife, Kathryn in the book finds out about her husband who was also the pilot of the plane. As Kathryn moves through the grieving process, events unfold to lay open the guarded secret her husband kept hidden from her all those years.
Kathryn finds herself reevaluating everything about their life together. She reviews events, memories and feelings, trying to discover the signs and symptoms of the beginning of betrayal and the end of trust.
