If I were asked to pick one word to describe this book I would use "pussyfooting". Everybody is pussyfooting around about letting people know what they're thinking, feeling, wanting, etc. - the whole lot of them. And I know that as a stand alone book everything would be somewhat tied up at the end but there were way too many strings being tied up SPOILER!!! [ found a lost daughter, changed jobs, fell in love, married etc (hide spoiler)]. Too much! I'm going to take a Jojo break.
