There are so many layers that drive this story all the way to its heart-wrenching conclusion.We see how each character's insecurities cause them to misconstrue the words and actions of those around them and how those insecurities embitter them toward one another as well. Will the characters' individual insecurities and motivations break the family apart, or will they be able to heal together after their loss?
This book brought up soo many emotions...fear, anger, betrayal, frustration, guilt, empathy, and so many more I can't put words to right now. How do all of these emotions resonate with me as a reader? Easy, I'm a woman, and this book tells my story.

This time of year, with the rain and the air starting to warm, everything was just starting to bud and bloom. Hiking the Pickle Creek trail, we saw lots of small waterfalls as the water raced over the rocks. The creek has carved away at the sandstone around it creating beautiful bluffs and rock faces. Though those same rocks made this trail a more difficult trail, but it was worth it to see those bluffs with the creek racing along at the bottom, wildflowers and trees blooming up around the banks.
I'm not sure any other thriller thoroughly creeped me out the way this one did. I had this perpetual skin-crawling sensation the entire time I was reading this book, and I'm not really sure if it was in a good way or a bad way.

I'm afraid once again I am against the grain with many readers of this book. I liked it a little better than okay, but fresh off the heels of reading the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, this book just didn't have the same magic.
Female spies, forbidden love, and a Soviet traitor....this should be good. I think that it was an excellent portrayal of women in a post-WWII world and the obstacles that they faced both personally and in the workplace....a diverting read and enjoyable enough.
