Rhi.pea ,


I’m not really much of a reader. I’ve always struggled with keeping focused long enough to finish a book. But that’s not the case with this Author, the way the she writes keeps you hooked from the first chapter to the last. I enjoy the changes in perspective from each character and the continuous twists A.A. Chaudhuri writes in her stories. Thank you for getting me in to reading, this is the 2nd book I’ve read of yours and I’ll be a fan always
