Too much book for the amount of story. Certainly not among her best.

First half was quite slow, but ok in the end. Didn't grab me like others of her books; maybe just not interested in adoption.

Very good exploration of family dynamics. The given description (from the book cover) is quite misleading; makes me wonder if the person who wrote it actually read the book.
