I made it thru 100+ pages of beautiful, if not over written, narrative. The prose was so lengthy, I lost track of the story, characters and dialogue. Then, when I hit a part of the story line that had an 11 year old girl sexually assaulted by a friend of her father's I just had to call it quits. I was really struggling with this book from the get go -- but because the theme was the relationships between many generations of Uruguayan women, I was willing to persevere. I wanted to see if I could find a rhythm and a connection. But once the molestation occurred, I was done.
This book required patience that I didn't have.
