Who would you recommend this book to?
What did you like most about this book?
I loved how Nanette Buchanan took the time to actually develop each of her characters. The layout and build of the plot was phenomenal.
What did you like least about this book?
This book was very long. Usually I would love that, but towards the end I felt like I found myself wanting to skip a few pages here and there to get ahead. The chapters were quite short so ultimately I was able to finish it fairly quickly.
Any suggestions for how this book could have been better?
There were very minor editing details - mainly spelling and grammar, but honestly it did not take away from the book at all.
What was your overall impression of this book?
This book was a complete breath of fresh air. I was completely engulfed in the story once I started. Janet Robinson was dealt a horrible hand and chose to deal with it in the worst way possible, suicide. While it was speculated that it was accidental, I don't really think it was. Either way, it seemed like she made a really great recovery and when she started to live for herself and not for her no-good husband and family who blamed her for the death of her father, she found herself. In the beginning, I could literally feel her heart breaking; I felt her pain and shared her fears as a mother. She overcame so much in her life all with the help of a shady doctor, who turned out to have some serious issues of her own. Richard Burnett was key in her being able to survive - her knight in shining armor. His feelings toward her were sincere even though everyone was leery in the beginning (myself included). All in all, I really enjoyed this novel and from the ending I would assume that there's a sequel that I can't wait to get my hands on. Brave, Ms. Buchanan.
