The book is split into three different female voices united by circumstances. The action moves between them in alternating time periods.
The main female characters are a blend of strong characters with unique flaws. I would have liked more background for all of them. I treated all the male characters with a healthy dose of suspicion.
I had heard a lot about this book and was intrigued to read it. Whilst I found the plot well constructed, I did get a little confused with the action at times.
A good tale to wile away an afternoon. You will never look at train journeys in quite the same way again.
