Maggie and Sylvie are perfect strangers: two very different women, living very different lives on opposite coasts. But they share more in common than they could ever imagine.

I recently read this book and I'd definitely recommend it to others who enjoy contemporary fiction. I recommend reading the blurb first - it's pretty easy to figure out what is going to happen, but I think it adds to the reading of the story. I see the book in 3 parts: The first part is getting to know the 2 woman and I was gripped by this part - having guessed what was going to happen and wondering how it was all going to play out.

Then there is the middle part where is does all happen. This to me was pretty unrealistic and a bit over the top. But I guess the author had to make them all get found out somehow. (Am trying not to give the actual 'something' away here of course). Then there was the aftermath. I really enjoyed reading this and seeing how the characters from the first half of the book changed and what they became. I wouldn't say this part was so gripping, but it was a lovely read.

It's a very readable book with a story different to anything else I have read. I read this book in record time, and although I don't normally read books twice as a rule, I would say this would have some merit in reading again.

I love Jane Green. She is a awesome writer of what I like to refer to as Chick-lit or Chick-Literature. Her books are heartfelt, full of love, emotion, hurt feelings and usually always a happy ending. Essentially she manages to tie everything up neatly and in a satisfying way. I usually pick up and devour a Jane Green book in a day. This book took me ages.

The first 100 or so pages dragged on and on and while I liked the characters well enough, I just wasn't gripped. I didn't identify with Sylvie. Her difficult relationship with her mum, and her weird husband which from the blurb I had already guessed the plot. I liked her, liked her artistic side and respected her strength. I just couldn't get into her story, possibly because I knew what was coming.

Then there is the daughter Eve, who is struggling in her own way. Again, I didn't identify with her, but I liked her. I understood she was in a hard situation, but it felt difficult to read her thoughts since I knew she was loved and she had people she could talk to. As the story progressed I engaged more and once the not-at-all-shocking reveal was made, the story got better. Overall, an okay read but just nowhere near as good as I know Jane Green can be.
