Worth the read

I found it very interesting that I purchased this book the same time I bought A Memory of Violets; which have similar story lines. Again, they involved a people search. This story gives a picture from the perspective of the battered wife and the ever apologetic abuser. Definitely a lesson to be learned here for all of us. Might help you understand if you have a friend in this intolerable position.

Very contrived but a sweet and captivating book.

The narrator is excellent and this is a good summer read. You can't help liking it.
