After "Halfway to Heaven" where we meet Helena and Michael for the first time, I was looking forward to this book. I was disappointed and enjoyed "Halfway to Heaven" so much better. I did not get drawn in to the Michael/Helena relationship. In fact, I didn't think they should get together at all. Plus, the relationship between Michael and Helena's husband was too coincidental. That being said, I did like watching Helena's transformation and what she created to help those around her.
An interesting stufy in growing indepedent as a woman...the hard way. Wiggs becomes more and more accomplished as an author with each book. I wasn't as impressed with this plot as books I have already read bI enjoyed it anyway. I like the way her characters are introduced in each book, to be expanded upon in another book to follow. I look forward to reading the next in the series but each book can and does stand on its own. It just helps to know the "history" of each character.
