Marian Coe's character development and story line are phenomenal. This book is a page turner with appropriate timelines. Marian relives events in women's lives with great sensitivity, drama, and resolution. A great gift of prose!
I had to reopen the book to look up the character's names - that's how forgettable this book is. There's a Rae, a Chloe, a Garth and I'm not sure who else. The plot was just as forgettable. What is not so forgettable is the atrocious grammar and numerous misspelled words throughout the book. SouthLore Press should be ashamed. Fortunately I checked this book out of the library and didn't pay good money for it.
