I did think of it halfway through the book- but then wasn't sure. I am so glad it was Vivian and was happy to find out that Jimmy had been saved. Wonderful that they both could meet people to love.

Glad to see that I was not alone to be surprised by the BIG Switch. I didn't have a clue.
Best part of the book and made my perseverance worth while.
Thought it was about family secrets but never about domestic abuse even though I knew Vivian was being abused in London.

I, like some others here, did see the ending coming, but not until Jimmy and Vivien began working on the play together. I worried, actually, as the end drew closer, that I was going to be wrong about my guess. She kept us waiting until the very end, didn't she?!
I was so happy with that turn of events because I strongly disliked Dorothy, yet I liked Laurel's mother quite a bit. As others mentioned earlier, it seemed like it would be an impossible task to reconcile the two.
I think the author handled the physical evidence and the personal histories/stories elegantly. It is difficult to pull off such a twist, but it was believable.

I didn't get this book here, but rather from the library, so hope it's okay to join the discussion. No, I must admit that I didn't see the ending coming, but one it did it made perfect sense. One didn't have to stretch one's disbelief to have the ending be realistic and to have it explain a lot. This was/is one of the best books I've read for a while and I'm recommending it to many others.
