The story bored me.

I just read Loretta Nyhan's THE WITCH COLLECTOR books, and REALLY loved them, so I decided to look up what else she's written, which led me to this. It's totally different from her other books, but in a really wonderful way. This Heart of Mine was surprisingly poignant and beautiful. It's a prequel, so now I'm really excited to read the book, I'll Be Seeing You! I am a fan of this author. Definitely.

Very Good. Nice story premise. Realistic depiction of the times. The author leaves the reader with more to ponder about life's strange realities. Recommend.
