This book had a lot of promise. It had to be written on a computer, which can recognize misspellings but not incorrect word usage. Where are the editors? Where are the proof readers? If you are an avid reader, sentences like "Their was something so fragile about her..." and "Their was a sweetness between them..." or "They could here the sounds..." (there, hear) are almost offensive. The plot dragged through most of the book, but I stuck with it, eager to see the lovers reunited in the end. Instead of a sweet reunion, it was written like a dream sequence with lots of pointless words and run-on sentences that made NO sense to the plot. BIG disappointment! At one point,the main character shoots and kills a man in cold blood, but we never know who it was or why he did it. I cannot recommend this book, nor would I read another one from this author. D.
