This book was amazing. “Bravo! Bravo!” If I could give it more than a 5 star rating I would, because it deserves it. This book is so emotionally charged. There were so many up and down moments that you will feel it deep in your bones. Love, sorrow, betrayal, self-doubt, happiness…..just……everything. Claire’s writing style is amazing. It feels as if she poured her heart and soul into this novel, into her wonderful characters. Claire really does know how to write an emotional book, that will draw you in and have you invested from the very first chapter.
Overall this book was outstanding. Claire is a very talented author who knows how to blend emotions together and create a wonderful master piece in her story. Her characters are not only lovable, but easy to relate to. This creates a very life-like story. The story flowed at an easy to read steady pace, that contained flash backs to help build the characters up and help the readers to get to know them better. I was so blown away by her story. I can’t wait till the next book comes out. I bet it will be just as good as this one.
