I'm not sure who it was that told me recently that Kate Atkinson wrote mysteries, but when I found that out, I had to go out and read one. I enjoyed this one, told from multiple perspectives, with characters who are infuriatingly obtuse, stubborn, wrong headed, and, uh... human. There were times when I thought it was going in a predictable direction, but then it took another path instead. One of the main characters is a 16 year old orphan who is heartbroken and grieving, but refuses to let anyone know her well enough to find that out. Another main character is also an orphan, a famous one who is trying to leave her notoriety behind. There are also several problematic or outright doomed marriages, as well as a couple of cases of mistaken identity. Some problems are settled by the end of the book, but others are just beginning. Entertaining, but with some serious psychological subject matter.
