    Can't wait to finish

    I try to always finish a book when I start one but I'm having to force myself with this one. The title grabbed me but I've been disappointed from page one. The story line is good but I have trouble with the vocabulary. Some of the things Dalia said do not sound typical of a 15 year old girl. Same thing with most of the other characters. Doubt that I'll buy another book from this author.

    I expected more....

    This book was a disappointment. I was expecting better writing and a better storyline. I'm sure that a typical woman living during those times may have reacted and made decisions in the same way that Dalia did, but I was hoping that Dalia would perhaps take over the family business after her father's death, becoming an independent woman who didn't need to rely on husbands for money. I just didn't find her character or any of the other characters, for that matter, very believable. I'm sure people truly were different and behaved in different ways back then, but I couldn't get into the book and never had any feelings of empathy or understanding for many of the characters - especially Dalia. As one other reviewer mentioned, the author should have focused more on a character like Katie Mae, a strong black woman who stood up to her beliefs and didn't compromise herself.
