It took over a hundred pages for me to get into this book. The story lacked cohesion and the characters ill defined. I warmed up to it more and more as the novel progressed but felt like the author brushed over events and swiftly moved on to the next. It is a story of three siblings trying to find what they are and learn how to find love without hurting another or themselves. There were bittersweet moments, tragic ones, and lovely momentous ones adding up to a rambling discourse of their lives. I'd say it is a very good book, one that deserves rave reviews but it was not really my cup of tea.
