I read a lot and this was one of the best books I’ve ever read. I even convinced my husband to read it. Finished it in two days. Love her writing .... please write more books!!!!!!
Meh, poorly written. One step up from a romance novel
It is amazing that the author spent so many years of research and interviews in writing this book. Most of the time, while reading, I forgot that it was not a novel, but indeed based on facts. I am surprised that these women were willing to tell their personal stories and show their vulnerabilities to the world. Sloan, Maggie and Lina were not classic examples of women, in my opinion, but rather exceptions to the rule. I did not get the connection of mothers passing their influence onto their daughters until the study notes at the end. If these women had strong, moral upbringings, their lives would have turned out differently. I did not get the feeling that any of the three women felt guilty about their illicit affairs with married men or how it may affect the children. Overall, an interesting read, but I would like to know how their lives finally turned out.
Done with Greg
I had to stop reading. Well written, brutally honest but I just couldn’t stay invested in finding out how their lives turned out. Very depressing stories.
I had to stop reading part way through. It’s good and well written but not enough to keep me interested for a straight through read. Not to mention a little depressing.
