This is an interesting story, and I was completely engrossed in unraveling the mystery for the first half of the book. But after that, you pretty much have it figured out, and I became less interested in the characters’ endings after a few problematic elements. For example, one young character gets an abortion and the most progressive character, known for her non judgmental attitude, is telling her she’ll always carry this with her, the sadness will never go away... It felt like the author and overall message of the book is that motherhood is ALWAYS sacred, and beautiful and to be treasured. And any deviation from this is a loss. I don’t think it was posing questions and multiple sides as much as it thinks it was, it felt a little too regressively preachy.
