This book follows the lives of two sisters, Jo and Bethie, from their youth through adulthood. The book started a bit slow for more but progressively gained steam. I really enjoyed the last half of the book and thought all of the characters were wonderfully developed. The writing was excellent and purposely wove a great story. I chose this book based on reviews, many of which hated the ending. I liked the way the story culminated and ended and felt like it matched the overall story and theme.
I liked that the book didn’t necessarily have a “happy” ending, but more of a “hopeful” ending.
