The Bruised Thistle
I have never written a review but I felt I must warn people not to waste their time in this book. The story lines didn’t match or connect. The characters qualities and personalities were all over the place so they did not seem like the same person from one moment to the next. Other characters would just appear then be gone and I was left wondering who they were, why were they introduced and hoping it would all tie together. But, alas, nothing tied together. It just ended with two main characters I didn’t know and a story that made absolutely o sense at all. So I would NOT recommend this book. Terrible.
