Reminiscent of the light, airy, innocuous writing style of Rosamund Pilcher, Lively’s story is a saga across generations, tenuously held together by the late reveal that the third generation woman cares about the first generation. Harmless enough, but unsurprising and, ironically given the title, inconsequential.
