A gripping story of three college students brought together by a common tragedy. This novel follows these three students from their youth in the 1960's through adulthood. I was impressed that the author was able to maintain such an engaging story over so many stages of life. There was no point that I wanted to put this book down! The author did a wonderful job developing the characters with just enough background to help you identify with them but not overwhelm you with details of their character. It was easy to get to know them as you read the book. This is a beautifully written novel. I look forward to reading more by this author.
This novel will appeal to a wide variety of readers. I'd hesitate to call it anything other than "literary fiction".
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher FSG and fsgbookkeeping.com.
