Overall, a very enjoyable book with complex characters. This has a lot of angst and as I said, it was hard to read at times. That did not detract from my enjoyment of the story. Will I read the second book and those that follow? Certainly. But I feel the need to hold off a bit before doing so for personal reasons. The emotional scenes were a bit too much for me and I'm not sure I can handle another like this one anytime soon. It is excellently written and the author should be commended for writing such an emotional, real story. My first by this author. I look forward to reading more.
I love the cover. :)
