What a great story!
This is a wonderful book that has highs and lows. While the main character is portrayed as strong, it is a more realistic view of the women that society always seems as strong who never waver. That’s not real life. What is real life? The way this writer portrayed this strong woman who in private and with those she is most comfortable with fights her battles and deals with her emotions.
A great start to a series...
