Book Reviews

I read this book in two sittings. Not only did I connect with the protagonist, I thought that she handled herself very well throughout the book, even under the pressure.

Susan Wingate has written a story that is intricately woven with complex characters who are real with their quirks and imperfections. That is what I loved about this story.
