    " Would definitely recommend this book, although the big secret isn't as big as implied. I really liked Lively's writing and am going to look for more by her. "

    " slow going, sometimes rambles on - introduced 5 characters in the first few pages, so its difficult to build a connection to the 'players' in the book. Will appeal to those who are familiar with life in England. "

    " thought it would be better than it was. can't relate to the mom who lives her life to project a perfect image, and doesn't have the insight to see the facade is not working. All six kids look back on their childhood with completely different memories...that part was the most interesting. "
