I remember reading Tara Road when I was a young adult and remembered liking it. I may have to read that again as this book A Week in Winter—well missed the week in winter.
The whole book was chapter by chapter of one characters story. How they blended together was this week in winter where they all met at a remodeled hotel…although one chapter had it so it was August and it seemed like the character was going there then.
She really needed one or two more chapters to pull the week together for learning about each other and seeing how people change or don’t change.
The character Chicky made up a whole story about how she ran away to the US and married the guy she ran away with yet she lied her whole life saying that they got married when they didn’t and then he died in her story so she could go back to the little town to create the hotel and the week in winter.
Too many characters without any depth.
Still waiting for the week in winter.
