All That I Am by Anna Funder

All That I Am: A Novel (P.S.) - Anna Funder

The first chapter started off well enough, but then the book kept switching back and forth between the 2000s and the 1930s, not just between chapters, but with flashbacks in each chapter. I just wanted to see the past part of the story, though neither past nor present, or the people in either, really kept my interest.
