My book club LOVED the book! Our group is made up of 7 women ranging from 42-60+ years old and they felt this book would appeal to young and adult women alike. I loved your writing as it really created strong images in my mind of the characters and places. The book club loved how you developed the characters and one woman commented that she grew to really care about all of them. Another woman commented how she loved the historical references to the time period and to Long Island. They all loved how there were so many different story lines within the main story line. We all had our favorite characters, mine being Julie . . . The ending brought up many questions about the second installment. The biggest question being when will it be released!!!!
