My Review: 

Oh my gosh. Prepare to have your heart broken.  This review is hard to write. I want to convey the brilliance of the novel, at the same time, there is so pain through the different generations. It really highlights how family dynamics changes us and makes us who we are. 

The Angry Women Suite was not what I expected. However, when I found out, I thought it made sense. The novel also made me cry.  At first, I didn't realize we skipped POV and I was confused. However, I was tired, so this not a book to read if you are sleepy. It's so important to catch the different POV's because there is so much going on.  The history of the family is quite astounding. 

The narrators, Elyse, Francis and Aidan intertwine the story. They each deal with their past in different, conflicted ways.  This novel really highlights the effects of abuse and neglect on the mind and the various  coping mechanisms people have.  For better or for worse.

  1. Looks like a great book. Although I'd have to keep an eye on the change of the POV, then. Thanks for the tip ;)
    I'll give it a try. Thank you for sharing! ;D

  2. Great review...I agree, the dysfunctions of the characters in this story are so real that it's both impressive (given the talent it takes for a writer to create such characters) and disturbing (since the truth about the human condition tends to hurt!).

    1. Thanks! It was very realistic and it's amazing to see how well writes can describe humanity through their characters.
