Once again I judged a book by it's cover (and title in this case) and grabbed it up without checking to see what it was actually about! A pleasant surprise this time.

This is a complex read, and can be slow (Nora's thoughts are occassionally a little depressing, but as you read you'll understand why), and has weird jumps in time span despite the slowness (you'll have a really slow pace that suddenly fast forwards and you're ahead a couple months. Definitely for older readers, ones that aren't squeamish and can follow a deep story line with parallels across time.
