    This was a very interesting story that weaves together several threads from the main characters: Iris, a young woman: Esme, her great aunt: and Kitty, her grandmother. Both Esme and Kitty tell part of their tale from earlier years and the present time. The story is advanced bit by bit to bring the present time together with the past to understand what happened to Esme. It is a bit disorienting at first going between characters and time frames, but I got used to it as the book progressed. The ending was unexpected and left a few strings hanging, but as I think about it, it was an appropriate ending. The narrator has a wonderful accent and I liked her lilt as she read.
