I wasn't too sure what to think of this book at the beginning, but the more I got into it, the more I wanted to keep reading. I also didn't really like the dual timeline and the dual perspective, but I understand it was needed to tell the complete story. In the end, everything makes sense now and I need that sequel. I also want to know if MY BOY DARLINGTON IS OK.
Anyway, Leigh's writing is amazing as usual and I love her characters so so much. I felt that this book was quite balanced in between being character-driven and plot-driven and honestly that's the way I like my books.
