My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"--- had known that night that never again in her lifetime would anyone show up on her doorstep with eleven thousand dollars in cash. She'd known that this was her last chance..." (p. 193)This is an excellent novel about chances taken and passed by and how those things reverberate through time. Like all Mandel's novels it is beautifully written and full of complex people who are interconnected in unexpected ways. Mandel was born in Canada and now lives in Brooklyn where I hope she is working on her next novel because now I have read all the novels she has published. This counts toward the Canadian Book Challenge.
