I honestly really disliked every single character in this book, from the bland husband, to the ridiculously afraid of actually living her own life main character, to the obnoxious and cliched sister, to the three year old that only spoke in third person. I felt like the jacket synopsis of the book was extremely misleading as to what the book was actually about and I didn't really understand the characters motivations for the things they did... the major plot point in the novel came out of nowhere for me. Also, I usually really enjoy Sittenfeld's writing- even though I didn't love the plot of "American Wife", I really enjoyed her writing. Not so here. I would skip this one. ( )

This story had a lot of things going on in it, and at times I wasn't quite sure where we were going to end up, but overall I enjoyed it. The author did a good job portraying the loyalty and betrayals and just plain messiness of family life, particularly among sisters. 3.5 stars. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I felt such empathy for the characters. I was disappointed by one plot line but felt so strongly about the people involved. I definitely recommend this. ( )

This book was incredible, I couldn't put it down. I suck at writing reviews, but just say I loved it. ( )

First words
The first earthquake wasn't the strongest—that would come later, in February 1812—but it must have been the most astonishing.
