It took me a while to get into it, but once I did, I was hooked and liked this book VERY much. Not so much a who-dun-it, as a where-are-they. This story is a tangle of one complex family and an illustrious, legendary artist. He effected the girls when they were girls...which in turn made him effect the women, when they were women. He struggles through his fame, unable to hold relationships, unable to open the doors to his heart very wide or for very long. The women move on and make due with a chasm of unspoken resentment and pain stuck fast between them. This was a real story, plausible. Misunderstanding, lack of communication, assumption. Love, fear, misconception, lies and secrets. Ornithology, birdsong, hands reaching out into nothingness, crippling illness, money and peerless art. Abandoned children, mothers in prison, mothers in secret, mothers dead. The twists were indeed twisty and surprising. A reminder about what life can look like at 'the end' when we've lived with our heads in the sand. End game. Who loses? Who flies away? Who joins the flock?
