I have to tell you that I could not put the book down. I read it nearly all night after I picked it up from the bookstore. I got a few hours of sleep (I stopped only because I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer) and I continued to read it, bleary-eyed, the next day until I finished it.
I honestly have to say that I can't remember the last novel that I have read that had such well developed characters in it. Susan brought these people to life, warts and all. The main character, Amanda, was amazingly real as was her husband. This could have been a true story. The ending was not neat and tidy, but totally realistic.
I found the book to be thought-provoking. Susan manages to prod the reader into thinking about ALL of the reasons behind a person's (character's)actions. This is a useful exercise in the real world as well. This is a truly well written book.
I am looking forward to reading The Revolt, which I have on order. If it is HALF as good as Though the Darkness Hide Thee and The Well-Trained Mind I know I won't be getting much sleep until I have devoured it!
