The opening scene of this book (in the prologue) captured me. Sheridan finds herself face down in the dirt, being held to the ground, and staring at her broken watch that reads twelve minutes, thirty-five seconds past ten o'clock. Her husband lays beside her, his shirt turning crimson red.
I couldn't put this book down. I loved the setting (mexico) and believable characters. Sheridan is so easy to relate to, and so human. She experiences conflicting emotions that I feel any woman would feel in situations she experiences - though many wouldn't admit to it.
The characters were real, the family relationships were complex, and the emotions were raw. I loved every second of this book and highly recommend it.
I just finished reading this book and was captivated by it. The characters seem like real, flawed people who just want to do what's right but are thrust into the middle of a situation that seems impossible. The setting is a small, cozy town in Mexico. It's an intriguing story and I loved the characters... well, most of them. The main character, Sheridan, is living with a husband who is not at all the man she married and finds herself in love with someone else. The reader really doesn't know what choice she'll make until she actually makes it. A poignant, touching read.
Sheridan is married to an ambassador to Venezuela. When both are injured, they hide out in Mexico. Sheridan then goes to Chicago, where her estranged father is dying. She must deal with several relationships while there.
This is a decent book, but I was rather bored with the storyline. Don't know why but I had a hard time sticking with the book. I am glad all the secrets hinted at during the book were revealed at the end.
I was absolutely riveted to this book after I started it! The plot was incredibly woven in all the lives explored in this absorbing book. I may read it again, just to see the details as they work together (now that I know the ending). Fabulous read!
Continued to hold my interest. Well written. Wonderful relationships between characters although could get "testy" at times. I could just feel the locations the sisters went and lived: tiny Mexican mountain town, Chicago,etc.
