The Patron Saint of Liars by Ann Patchett

In The Patron Saint of Liars Ann Patchett seamlessly tells a story in three parts and from three perspectives, from the single mother Rose, from the daughter, and from the second husband. I wasn't as crazy about the lead character, Rose, in this novel as I've been in other books, but in further reflection, I'm not sure I'm supposed to love her. If Rose had done things the way I wanted her to do them all through the book instead of it playing out the way it did I would have been happier but in the end that is all a part of what makes this story excellent.
