From Publishers Weekly
Taking up where g Sins of Omission left off, Michaels's latest domestic saga brings lifelong friends Reuben and Daniel and their women full circle as the tumult of World War II descends upon?pk on Europe. In most respects, the sequel is better than its precursor, largely because the story itself is more engaging. The bestselling author is as polished above as they come in making her settings work for her, and here she uses the drama of occupied France as a backdrop for some of the book's most compelling scenes. The panache of her prose helps mitigate the fact that the main characters are wooden, puppets motivated chiefly by their creator's insistence that they keep committing the same mistakes until they stumble upon a way to put things right, as when Daniel misjudges his daughter just as he previously did his wife. Michaels's creed also demands that the children inevitably repeat the sins of their parents--allowing her little choice but to pen another installment.

SPOILERS FOR THE ENDING BELOW
Then there's the end which is just ludicrous. So there's a manipulative, crazy underage woman that they must all figure out how to deal with and their solution is just to do ....NOTHING. That's right, in 1940's where the husband and the father is the law, with a school history of lying and manipulation and deceit to draw on, all they had to do was find a psychologist willing to say she was suffering from female hysteria and toss her in the clink. If both her father and her husband joined sides, she wouldn't have stood a chance.
I mean talk about a pathetic wishy washy ending. Not to mention, I know the kid wasn't the husbands anyway but he could have taken it from her at any time. Women didn't have a whole crapload of rights back then.
I am not saying that they would have had to actually do it, but you cannot tell me that there were no options to threaten her with rather than just throwing up their hands and going, oh she's won. What a load.
