Her first book, and although her voice develops further as she publishes more novels, this is a great start to a great career. The characters are likable, quirky enough to be interesting, but not so quirky they can't be taken seriously, and edgy enough to keep the reader interested.

This is another good read from Lipman. She does a first-rate job on character development. Her characters are comfortable and often recognizable as someone we may know. At the same time, they are mysterious enough that we want to read on!

Pretty good book. Story about the relationship between a mother and the daughter she gave up thirty something years before.
