This 557 page nook book was very good. It is for adult readers. There is explicit sexual content and situations. It was well written, edited and had great characters. There was a great flow to the story line. It was easy to follow the characters and action and was just complicated enough to hold my interest without being over whelming. I often have to lay a book down and a long period may pass before I can continue my current reading project. With this book, I did not have to do any back tracking, I was able to start reading exactly where I left off, which was very nice. It was a bit predictable in places, but had some surprizes as well. This was not a typical romance. It was about a man in a loveless marriage, torn between two families and two ways of life. When he is killed in an auto accident, his daughter unravels her father's life to discover who he really was. In the process she also discovers, who she is and where her destiny will be. This a great heart warming novel.

    Do not recommend.

    I did not enjoy this book. Seems the "fix" for everything was several shots of cheap whiskey. Uncle Harry was likable, but much too crude. Sex was graphic. The story line was one I would like my teenage granddaughter to read, but of course, she can't. I wont be reading any other works by this author.

    Started Off Great

    I really liked this story line even when I figured out how it was going to go once the disgruntled male figure arrived in the picture. What I did not get was the last chapter when the author felt she had to introduce explicit sexual content. It just didn't fix in with the rest of the story. I felt the author was exploiting her own story.

    A tragedy

    I found this story depressing. It doesn't present women as being very intelligent. Lilly seemed to be the only character untouched by this tragedy.
