I loved "Three Junes" so was looking forward to another novel by Julia Glass. This was a disappointment. It's soap-operatic plot lines and overlapping stories seemed forced, not too mention too stuffed with digressions and reflections. A good editor could have pared this back by 100+ pages. And would someone please tape over the parentheses keys on Julia Glass' keyboard! The use of phrases and sentences set aside by parentheses was way overdone. How about a comma or a separate sentence? Jarring to the point of being annoying.

Yes , Julia Glass is an extraordinary writer - I truly like her writing style . The book is too long , but it's good to see old characters resurface
