"Veteran con artist Roy spots an obvious easy mark when he meets Betty, a wealthy widow, online. In no time at all, he's moved into Betty's lovely cottage and is preparing to accompany her on a romantic trip to Europe. Betty's grandson disapproves of their blossoming relationship, but Roy is sure this scheme will be a success. He knows what he's doing. As this remarkable feat of storytelling weaves together Roy's and Betty's futures, it also unwinds their pasts. Dancing across almost a century, decades that encompass unthinkable cruelty, extraordinary resilience, and remarkable kindness."-- Publisher.

A solid enough debut. I figured out the twists but it didn't stop me from enjoying the ride. I did find aspects of the plot unbelievable (such as one of the twists, that a character would go to the trouble) and some parts handled more deftly than others. I felt the further back in time we went the less nuanced the text became. I also thought the last two chapters were both unnecessary, especially the very last one. An interesting study, overall, in how one sees oneself against reality.
