I'm not really sure what to think of this one. I liked the idea behind the book, and I enjoyed the retrocognition parts (although I don't believe in it), where each person in Jane's past generations were telling their stories. And I found that I wanted each person to just tell me a little bit more. But I expected something totally different...I thought it would be more about the crime, the trial(s), with this information about past generations being thrown in during the trial of Tom. In the end, it never gave me a satisfying conclusion...I like the books I read to wrap up (not necessarily neatly), instead of just ending. I wanted to know if the defense Tom's lawyer used actually worked.
Still, it was a good book, an enjoyable read. I didn't want to put it down.
