Utterly predictable but sweet

The jacket summary basically tells you the whole novel. Ok, so there are some subplots it doesn't describe, but they don't really matter to the overall story. However, it's a sweet, quickly readable book.

One of my favorite things about it actually was the author's commitment to really describe everything and not skip forward in time because it was easier. I fully thought the accident was not going to be described step by frightening step, but it was. We went through that right along with Margaret.

While I wanted Margaret to succeed, I didn't actually care about her. She was wallpaper. She was a lens for other people's stories to happen through. She had no personality - by design - but when she started to change, she still didn't really have a clear point of view or voice.

If you want a light - despite heavy themes - romantic read, go for it. Just don't expect any deep lessons along the way.
