    Highly recommend

    I didn't expect the ending, but it was appropriate. The book was well written and I liked the growth of the characters. The book is for an open minded reader who can see the frailness of mankind. I think it would be a great book for book club discussions because it is short but very readable and would lend itself to a great discussion!
