This book was all over CBR last year, and I had it on my list of books to read. A few friends decided to start a book club, so I thought this one would be good for discussion. I’m writing this review before the discussion, and so my feelings may change (that does happen sometimes!) At this point, I thought it was a beautifully written story with interesting characters. The pace of the book was a crescendo, with all the stories weaving together and building up to a big ending. I felt the build up dragged a bit, and would have like to see the pace picked up. I am going to give this book 3 stars.
