Super read - Even for a guy!

First off, I'm a guy, a guy's guy, you know? And, my wife and I were on vacation and I didn't bring a book with me. Well, my wife, Michelle, just finished this book she called a women's fiction book and said that I could read it if I wanted to. I kind of hate to say thi...
First off, I'm a guy, a guy's guy, you know? And, my wife and I were on vacation and I didn't bring a book with me. Well, my wife, Michelle, just finished this book she called a women's fiction book and said that I could read it if I wanted to. I kind of hate to say this but the author's writing was so good it kept me in the story and then there's this husband who, as I read, felt a little like me. And, I was hooked! The story is full of danger but, like, relationship danger and I kind of got lost in the story and before I knew it, I'd finished. The ending will grab you by the throat too so watch out. Wow. Never thought I would like a girl's read but this one was fantastic.

No comparison

I have read every book written by Jodi Piccoult and Kristin Hannah. They are brilliant writers! To compare their books to this book is ludicrous! No comparison at all. I hope the author.has another job because she will not make it in this field.

    I read this book in two sittings. Not only did I connect with the protagonist, I thought that she handled herself very well throughout the book, even under the pressure. I could sense Euly’s emotions as she struggled with her mother’s death and her failing marriage, yet was relieved as she made good decisions about her own live. No life runs smoothly and perfectly, but Euly was able to hold herself together through everything. Great book.

    Amazing Read - highly recommend

    I set this book down after reading the last words and I was weeping. This is a profoundly moving story about a mother and her daughters, especially Euly. Not only have I fallen in love with this story but the author as well. I'll be following Susan Wingate's work for years to come.
