I read this book in one long sitting. It is wonderful. A librarian mentor of mine asked me what it is about and I gave a very short response; it is difficult to explain because the story unfolds like a mystery you don't want to give away. I liked that the reader is just about at the same level of knowledge as the main character Taylor about her life and her family history. I also liked that I was a few steps ahead of her in piecing it together. I wish I could read this book for the first time again.
