Oliver, now in his sixties, is a serial adulterer and has just fallen giddily in love yet again. Catherine, seemingly placid and content, has ghosts of a past she scarcely remembers. When Catherine's long-forgotten high school friend dies and leaves Catherine the guardian of her teenage daughter, that past comes rushing back.

One of those books where you ask yourself at the end, "What the heck?" Very postmodern. ( )

This book just was. It wasn't good it wasn't bad. It filled a few days time. The plot was ok. I did like the story form a narrative from 3 different characters point of view. I disliked the lack of character development and some parts of the plot seemed forced to make a happy ending. Not the natural progression of events. ( )

Antonya Nelson is best known for her short stories, but in this novel she uses the extra space to wonderful effect. This is a thoughtful, elliptical novel and the gentle pace may not grab all readers, which is a pity because this is a beautifully written, deeply insightful novel about the lives of three women in Kansas. Catherine is in her 40s, and married to much-Oliver, a vain and self-indulgent man on his third marriage, although one senses it may not be his last. Misty is Catherine's childhood friend, whose life diverged from Catherine's into more turbulent, and messier, waters. The book opens when Misty, with a dog in the back of the car, drives off a road to her death. Her daughter, Cattie is a teenager is 'willed' to Catherine and when she learns of her mother's death, skips out on her Eastern boarding school with $500 in her pocket, a rather dodgy travelling companion and a stray dog.

If you are looking for a page-turning plot, perhaps this isn't your book, because things happen slowly here, and apart from the intial car crash, without much violence, even though the BTK Killer hovers like a malevolent spirit in the background. Nelson's territory is interior and this is the landscape on which she works her considerable magic. Her focus shifts, at one moment bringing Catherine and Oliver's marriage into the spotlight, at another turning it onto Oliver's infidelities, or Cattie's journey . . . All flows together seamlessly, creating a vivid and intriguing portrait of these people's lives. On cannot help but think of Chekhov.

The story begins and ends with the dog from the back of Misty's car, and it is testment to the grace of Nelson's writing that this feels right and good and not a bit maudlin.

Settle in. Get a good cup of tea. Relax. Take your time and enjoy this terrific book. ( )

Geez, I tried. Several times, I tried. Just could not get into this book or connect with its characters. A different style of writing that required too much effort on the part of the reader, in my opinion.

I did receive this book from a Library Thing giveaway, which has obviously not influenced my review. Thank you for the opportunity. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
All in all, a rather average book. I never really became interested in the characters and their lives. Generally, a book in which not much happens and one that is easily forgettable. ( )

The dog had two impulses. One was to stay with the car, container of civilization, and the other was to climb through the ruined window into the wild.
