Cascade: A Novel by Maryanne O'Hara
 
Book Club Recommended
Beautiful, Insightful, Dramatic
Engrossing plot and beautiful writing

Cascade is written beautifully. But it is also one of the most addictive books I have read all year. Perfect combo of page turning story and well-crafted writing. I love when I find that! The story sucks you in, but so does the language and the tone of the book. I lost myself in the 1930\\\'s world...a time I have always loved, and which the is perfectly recreated here.

I found ways to relate and not relate to all of the characters, and that is one of the reasons I was kept interested. There are a lot of difficult choices made in this book. As human beings we often think of ourselves as making truly difficult choices all the time - but do we ? Often what we want to do, or what is right, is actually pretty easy to distinguish once we clear the cobwebs. But sometimes we are faced with truly difficult choices that have no real right answer, and then what do you do? And once you do it, how do you live after that? O\\\'Hara addresses this perfectly.
