Sorry this one didn't work for you.

My book club read this one, and discussed it with the author, a few years ago.

No one liked it. I enjoyed the first part, the idea of the teacher and the daughter (and the birth mother's story).

I also couldn't put the book down, wanting to know what would happen to the relationship mentioned above.

There was alot to discuss so it made for a good book discussion.

I feel like I could have written an almost identical review for a book called "When She Flew" by Jennie Shortridge, which was our most recent book club pick. The plot sounded so promising and it was something of a page turner, but the contrived dialogue, loose ends and unsatisfying ending killed me.


I'm sorry to hear that this book let you down. I'll be sure to avoid it. Thanks for the warning.


I loved the book - it's hard to believe you all felt this way, in my mind it was one of the best written books I've ever read, with the most interesting characters.
