5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 18 April 2014

I liked the narrative voices and how the book twists and turns . Interesting and unusual subject matter that we may have not thought about before

good story well told in parts but the writing style was poor ( in my opinion) - felt it had the potential to be a much stronger story

really enjoyed it but it was confusing to keep up with which Ursula it was as each part was fragmented throughout the book I found myself wishing it had been written as one time line per Ursula to be easier to follow but rich characterisation and deeply moving in parts. made me think how different each of our lives could be based on one small change

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept but.., 30 Jan 2014

found this book readable and likable but ..found the pace chaotic almost as if there were no paragraphs to represent 10 years of time and a lot of what I felt was padding that added little to the story - the circus : didn't they have homes to go to! I liked Harriet though

I read this in one sitting on a train - in places achingly sad and well crafted and in others not so strong. lots of themes none of which are easy
