A convoluted plot and crowded cast of characters may deter readers new to the series. Still, Hall excels at conveying the era’s zeitgeist, including the lingering shadow of WWII and the backlash against women entering the workforce, and Kate’s art-school acquaintance with John Lennon is a particularly compelling detail.
