It's strange to give an audiobook top scores when I'm not 100% sure I liked the story. It went in dark directions at times, I'm not sure why the story had to play out the way it did. However, it beautifully captured the mixture of joy and torment a person can experience in a lifetime (as demonstrated by the two mother figures); the fog that can settle over some who never find their way out and how this does not invalidate the love they have with those they leave behind. It explores the fragility of the human experience but the externality of the love shared in a lifetime, however long or short. There are moments in this book so poignant that I was brought to tears. While there were parts of the story that were left unexplored (at least to me), I suppose even this parallels life itself, which can be unexpectedly cut short. It reminds us to ask whether we are fully living each day to its fullest.

This was a potentially interesting plot that fell flat with a very contrived and soap- opera-ish tone to it. The characters were barely sketched out and the drama was
contrived. it's not the worst book I've ever listened to but I wouldn't recommend it because there are so many better books out there. Mediocre.
