Too Little, Too Late

Too Little, Too Late

by Marta Tandori

Natasha Cheng (11/07/12): The book focuses on the lives of three women: Kate Stanton, a famous seventy-something-year-old former singer and successful semi-retired businesswoman who dotes on her spoiled granddaughter, the self-centered seventeen-year-old Karen Devane as well as Liz Farrell, the twenty-three-year old daughter of the homeless woman who's killed at the beginning of the story.

The book is divided into three parts as well as the prologue, with the first part establishing the back story for Kate's early life and her rise to fame; the second part of the book focuses on Karen, her close relationship with her grandmother and her not-so-close relationship with her mother while the third part deals with events after the homeless woman's death.

The back story of Kate's life was really interesting. She was a war child borne through Hitler's Lebensborn program. By the third part, I couldn't put the story down. All the characters started coming together and the plot became pretty intense.

What I really liked about the story was the close relationship between Karen and her grandmother as well as Karen's evolving relationship with the dead woman's daughter, Liz. Overall, I found the book to be a really enjoyable.
