Too heavy with no relief
I finished this first book in the series hoping the weight of this story would lift in the second book. The emotional drama in this series is overwhelming. With not an ounce of relief from the endless despair.
While reading the second book to this series I couldn’t handle the despair any longer and so I jumped ahead pages to find a lightening in the story line. But it just continued. So I can’t say how the series ended. But I will say, I couldn’t make through to the end without it feeling depressed. Not my cup of tea.
