Great book. I had a little trouble getting into it at first, but once I understood the characters and their parallel lives with intertwined pieces, I couldn't put it down. I thought the author did a beautiful job of developing the four/five women and telling the story. I would have liked to hear a bit more about the government that brought the law to pass. I also was disappointed by the ending? After all that lovely character development and resolving the main plot line I felt it was too abrupt.
