This was a good listen and a moving story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
There were times I wanted to slap Orren and shake Aloma, and I'm not convinced that they wouldn't be better off just moving on, into the unknown, but life isn't perfect and we often make choices according to what's put in front of us and then hope and try for the best. And sometimes we find out later that it really was the best choice, though we don't know it at the time. I hope that is how it will be for them.
The focus of this story is upon a young couple and their struggles against circumstances and each other. Their union was probably not made in heaven. How they started, their attitudes, how they deal with the challenges of the relationship and their own separate lives are dealt with in a very realistic manner. It's not riveting or exciting, so don't expect it to be. Though its fairly easy to connect to the characters, as they are very well developed. The high point for me is the ability of the author to display emotional depth in the characters. Their responses to most situations are often very nuanced and complicated, as they usually are in real life. The ending will not appeal to all, though it did to me. The reading was well done, well paced. An above average read with good characterization.
