If the point here was to show how little we really know about others, she succeeded. But while Sue Miller writes beautiful prose, this book never came together as a satisfying novel for me. The characters were not engaging. The plot, or what little there was of one, went nowhere. I found it really disappointing based on her other works.

It kept my interest enough to finish it but it didn't move me in any way. In fact I didn't like the main character at all.

Unfortunately this book let me down, it didn't live up to the standard of Sue Miller in books like "THe Good Mother" and "While I was Gone". It was an OK read, easy going and light.
