Great review! I am anxious to curl up with this book today. By not naming the main character gives the reader a chance to step into her shoes in my opinion. At least that is how it is for me, I can easily step into the role

Great review! I'm glad you said it gets better as you continue reading it. Sometimes it's hard to get through the beginning of the book.

Nice, thorough review. I like that this book is about characters discovering who they are and what they want. I like self-discovery types of stories and this seems like one of them.

It was one of the best I have ever read!!:-) Because of this, I'm going to head back to Amazon and get my copy. They really need to post your review in the description section for this book on Amazon. I feel like so many more people would buy it because they would have a better idea what the book was about! Thank you so much again!!:-)
I believe we are allowed to post reviews on pages like Amazon as long as it is not the full review we posted here, as OBC owns the rights to our reviews. I cannot recall, but I think we are also allowed to post a link to the full review we posted here.

Apparently I haven't been getting notices on comments! I am pretty behind ;) I am glad that my review has helped some people gain a better view of what this book is about and decide if it is a book that fits their tastes.

Not knowing the character's name could drive me nuts :lol:
But it could also turn out to be the best part of the book, it just depends!

What one author tries, and fails to do, another will succeed.

This has made me curious.
