Thanks for the great review. This book definitely sounds interesting. Its surprising that there isn't much of an actual plot, as you mentioned, but that the story mainly revolves around exploring the characters' relationships with one another. That's different than most other books I've read and I would love to give this one a try.

:techie-studyingbrown: It is a book with secrecy that deserve to be known and of course money is not everything I believe family should be very important to all.
Thanks for a gr8 book it is definitely a must read.

By the review given, it seems to be a stands focused more on development with the plot as a backdrop, yet done well. This in of itself is incredibly intruiging, and I'll have to give it a look. Great job.

This novel sounds engaging and I want to read it based on your description of how multi-layered the characters are. Of course, I'm also curious about what the big secret could be. Thanks for the helpful review!

The book seems to be great especially because it is based on interwoven relationship something which many people around the world could identify with the drama and conflict in the family seems to set it on motion and the author has tried to help us understand the power of motive.
But I think she should really work a little bit more on the plot.

I'm curious to know what the house and the surrounding land mean to different family members. I love these kind of stories about family relationships. I feel like I relate most to these types of novels and can see myself enjoying this one. Thanks for the insightful review.
