This is a ghost story obviously. But it also talked about the distance within the family. Young family members are not connecting closely with each other. They felt their aged relatives cannot always keep pace with what's happening now and just keep memorizing the beauty of their past. This book has less touch on romance and stress on the abnormal situation which your old relatives just past away and you are the only one to see the spirit (quite like the "sixth sense"). I enjoy Remember me than this one in the first half of the book.
P.106"More talking?" Sadie looks appalled. "How are you going to forget him if you keep talking about him? Darling, when things go wrong in life, this is what you do." She adopts a knowledgeable tone. "You lift your chin, put on a ravishing smile, mix yourself a little cocktail -- and out you go." P.252 "It's not enough to believe!" Sadie's voice is suddenly passionate, almost savage. "Don't you see that, you stupid girl? You could spend your whole life hoping and believing! If a love affair is one-sided, then it's only ever a question, never an answer. You can't live your life waiting for an answer." P.293 Life is like an escalator. It carries you on regardless and you might as well enjoy the view and seize every opportunity while you're passing. Otherwise it'll be too late. P.441 Everyone knows revenge is a dish best served when you've had enough time to build up enough vitriol and fury. P.451 Life takes us on different paths. It's not up to us to evaluate or judge them, merely respect and embrace them.
