Bound by Antonya Nelson

This book was recommended to me by one of our library patrons, and was one of the New York Times Notable Books of 2010.

I really enjoyed it. It is partly a story about relationships, partly a suspense novel that kept me reading to find out what happened next.

It begins with a riveting scene in which a woman (Misty) accidentally goes off the road in Colorado in her car, and her dog escapes. Subsequent chapters take the reader to her friend Catherine, Misty's now orphaned daughter "Cattie", and Catherine's marriage to a much older man, Oliver, and Catherine's mother who is in a nursing home.

The ending has an interesting twist, and I like that it was left so open ended. Recommended to those who want a good read, as well as those who want a good book to discuss.
