Review in 75 words or less: Enjoyable novel, but I did not enjoy it near as much as I thought I would. Sadly, most of this novel was very slow for me, and at the half way point, I even considered not finishing it. Thankfully, the plot finally starts to pick of speed in the second half, which is a hidden jewel. It was filled with emotion and recovery. I wish the whole novel had been this magical.Final Verdict: Mixed feelings. Enjoyable novel, but I wish it been more consistent through out. Recommended for readers who enjoy novels with life issues and a little mystery mixed in.
