It's not good to figure out and hope everything will turn out ...

I was enthralled by this novel. Lily King has to have lived this story to be able to know the heart and soul of what is in one's head. As I read it I took the time to tell friends how incredible the book is. Unfortunately I should have waited until I finished the book to comment on it. It needs one more chapter. It needed wrapping up. It's not good to figure out and hope everything will turn out just fine. I'd sleep better really knowing all ended up well. Did the mother stop drinking? I hope so. Did everyone live happily ever after? Vida being an English teacher quoted from "Tess of The d'Urbervilles" throughout the novel. It made me interested enough to put it on my wish list. So I guess it earned it's 4 stars. Wish it could have been 5.
