by Amanda Eyre Ward
A while back, I told all of you about How to Be Lost, also by Ms. Eyre Ward. Since then, I've read everything she's written. What I can tell you after having done so, is that she is a master of weaving multiple storylines together, but in ever new ways! She is never predictable, which is good, because there is no more assured death knell for an author - for me - than predictability. The plot of this book involves a woman awaiting execution on Death Row, another woman who is mourning the loss of her murdered husband, and a doctor who leaves a comfy engagement following the death of her father and moves back to her hometown. It's so sweetly written, and she's so fair to all the characters and their backstories. I highly, highly recommend it.
