"When Anita Naakka jumps in front of an oncoming train, her daughter, Norma, is left alone with the secret they have spent their lives hiding: Norma has supernatural hair, sensitive to the slightest changes in her mood - and the moods of those around her - moving of its own accord, corkscrewing when danger is near. And so it is her hair that alerts her, while she talks with a strange man at her mother's funeral, that her mother may not have taken her own life."--

Painfully endured this to the end. So many characters but very few developed to a point where you might give a hoot about them, nor did most of them add much to the plot lines. l kept hoping something would get neatly resolved, but neither clarity over mom's suicide nor destiny of the surrogate business emerged. Not so, at least to my satisfaction.
