sad to report that this book turned out to be a complete waste of my time. i kept waiting and hoping for something huge to be revealed since one sister had left home for 57 years b/c of it (and i'll admit that while i often prefer resolution, i can live without it, if the book is good enough), but the ending (and what little resolution provided) left me flat. i didn't feel that any of the characters, save ginny -- our narrator whom was clearly not reliable -- were fully fleshed out. the author spent more time on the moths. i'm sure there were parallels between the moth species and the family members, but i was too bored to make them. very disappointed.
