I have read a few Anita Shreve books and have enjoyed all of them. This one was an Oprah’s book club book and the high recommendation that this suggests is definitely well deserved. A simple storyline, Kathryn’s husband is a pilot and he is killed when his plane explodes. From there the investigation into why the accident has occurred opens Kathryn’s eyes to the truth about her husband. I wouldn’t say there is a tangled storyline that evolves, there is definitely a twist and a turn, but while sorrowful for Kathryn it is written in an understated manner for the reader. A good read, and I would read it again.
Busy chick’s highlight – Kathryn literally opens the door to the truth in London.
