I absolutely loved the passages set in Greece in the 1950s with the unwanted and unloved main character as a nineteen year old but when the action shifted to the present day, I found the viewpoints very muddled. I do know that this was partly the writer's intention to show how chaotic the life of a mother is but some sections were the thoughts of a character (presented quite dramatically) who actually wasn't even on the page. It often made for a very confusing read. A careful edit would have made all the difference and I'm disappointed because I really loved "Meeting Lily".
Good winter get-away read.
