Great book. I picked it up and then i couldn't put it down. It has a bit of everything. Romance, mystery ,love ,betrayal,murder..What else does one need? The story flowed nicely and didn't stay too long in one place which i appreciate. ( )

A well-wrought tale of two disparate young women facing seemingly insurmountable problems, and the road taken to overcome the odds against. The characters are well-drawn and engaging, the plight of each is an old one, but how things are managed is encouraging. A great read, don't miss it!
Thank you, LibraryThing! ( )
