couldn't resist buying this book with beautiful cover art when Allegra Goodman spoke at our local bookstore 2 years ago in July.

Saved it to read for a bookgroup discussion earlier this month. I liked it better than expected. The reviews comparing the author to Jane Austen were IMHO a disservice. The initial intro to the 2 sisters seemed a bit stereotypical and I expected a lightweight read. But it picked up in story line, character development, complexity - and we all found it an enjoyable, even thought-provoking read - as well as a good discussion.

Autographed copy!

on its way to hyphen8 in Hawaii - part of a RABCK wishlist tag!

Happy to share this autographed copy with someone who knew the author from high school days! (also noticed that hyphen8 (and Allegra) are the same age as our daughter lisaxiii)

Enjoy!

Received today as a wishlist tag book - thank you very much!

Always glad to see Allegra's books doing well. The review is a nice bonus - I'll keep it with the book.

Here's another copy on my shelf.
