Book: Ask Again Yes
Author: Mary Beth Keane
this is my 49th read for the year.
This is the story of the Gleeson and Stanhope families. Living next door to each other for years yet never really knowing what was going on behind closed doors in each other's homes. Kate - the youngest Gleeson child and Peter - the only Stanhope child develop a friendship early on in their lives that grows into a love affair as they get older. Time ticks by quickly in the story as Kate and Peter navigate family strife and a terrible tragedy that lead them into a lifelong struggles.
This was an okay book. The story was just.....fine. The passage of time was a problem for us. The story skipped ahead so fast that it really didn't make me feel much for the characters at all. It covers more than half the life of Kate and Peter not really taking the time to develop their life story on a deeper level.
It was just....eh. I didn't finish it wish there was more or being drawn to any of the characters. So I would say skip it.
Stars: 3 1/2
