What an interesting book this has been! There is a passion that flows throughout the whole story and that surrounds you completely…it is really interesting and very, very recommendable. – Netgalley

Can courage and love overcome past regrets? 

I can normally work out the plot in a book after reading the first few chapters and I thought I had with this book but it just kept surprising me at every turn! I had a few moments of “really did I just read that?” and “did she just say that?”. I love when a book does this because you feel the writer is writing outside the box. Traditionally Lesfic seems to follow certain rules and I love a rule breaker. – Les Rêveur
