Review- The book is kind of like an ensemble cast of a TV series, or better yet, a soap opera. We learn about all these secrets people keep and then go about trying to right past wrongs.
This is more telling than showing and some people are good with that. It does read a bit like it was written for television.
You do care about the characters though the dialog leaves a lot to be desired.
All in all it’s an okay story and worth a read if you love big ensemble casts.
