    The passage of time hid the fact that they were all most alike, especially in their decisions to sever all ties with their families. Agent, Andrea Cirillo. It's powerful and poignant with real, relatable and raw characters. I loved this novel. The imperfect characters with imperfect lives make it easy for the readers to relate to them and allow the truth behind the story to be revealed: love and forgiveness can always be found in God.

    You deserve it. Natalie Bishop, whose own memories of the tragic night are a blank, of murdering Emily. From Kathleen's own sad background we're drawn back to the pasts of her mother, Eleanor, and grandmother, Fiona, through the memories of others. Chelsea and Emma recall a nursery rhyme about an elephant family, a beloved poem from their childhood.

    Kathleen was a product of the political uneasiness of the volatile '60s. After a few sessions with a therapist, Kathleen tries reconnecting with her daughter by taking her to a party hosted by the estranged family members Kathleen left years ago. The next to last chapter, while good, and resolved in the ways I would have hoped, yet containing some surprises, seemed just a little too…pat, maybe. We're already aware of the results of each woman's choices, and just need to find out how they got there.
