Chasing Windmills

I really enjoyed this story. It was quite a journey and very well written. The characters are very believable and their personal stories as well as their relationships really drew me in. It was a very interesting read and it kept calling me back so that I finished it in just a few days. I would highly recommend this story. It made me feel, it made me think and the ending was a real surprise. It makes me want to read more from this author and I hope soon to find more of her books here on Apple iBooks.
