The different narrators,characters, and points of views made this book more interesting. Not all main characters were equally likeable, and the crime was not terribly hard to solve. However, the picture of abuse and the far reaching impact on people's lives made it a story that was difficult to put down or to forget.
This "read" would have been better abridged as some of the narrations were a little long winded at times, but it had a twist at the end I didn't expect and I found myself enjoying the "faith" plot along the way!
Like most of this author's books, this one has a twist. I got a little bored with some of the narratives (especially by the teenage daughter), fast-forwarding through them but I could still follow the storyline. This book kept me company on several long drives.
Why? This point never has a point, makes a point, and never really tells a compelling story. It is by far the WORST book that I have listened to in a very long time!
It seemed like there were a lot of different themes being explored in this book, but none very deeply. I'm not sure what point the author was trying to make, maybe none. It was an entertaining read, though.
