    I can't decide. I loved it until the last page and then was totally disappointed at the end.

    Ugh. I hate when that happens. I have it on my massively long to-read list, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

    I've got it reserved with my digital library but there are a lot of holds ahead of me so it'll be awhile before it's my turn. Should I bother? It makes me wonder if I should, if you were disappointed by the ending....hmmm.....I hate when that happens.

    It's DEFINITELY worth reading...especially if you like Kate Morton. And you should totally read it so we can talk about it =) It ended and I wanted more. The book is really long but then just ends, leaving me wanting to know more.

    I was quite disappointed in it. I love Kate Morton books but this one felt a bit flat. Too many characters, didn't really care too much about any of them. Would have been better to leave out one of the story lines and develop others more.

    Yes. Too many storylines and the trinket box? Really?

    @FarrahJobling I actually snagged this from the library on Thursday. I love her writing and I've read as many of her books as I can find!
