Really different, intelligent book that made you think, and didn't provide "pat" answers or the predictable ending you might expect. What if you and your soul mate were "meant to be", but the time was never right? Very, very interesting premise. I'd read her again.
I enjoyed this book, even if the ending left me a bit surprised. Sometimes I appreciated the authors need to describe a scene thoroughly and other times I truly wished she would have cut short some of the rhetoric. Not in my top ten , but a nice read nonetheless.
very unusual book, story, characters and the end with shock everyone....I never realised how being from a different part of the world could make the writing, understanding, plot and the characters so very different.....not for the timid or faint of heart......you dont want to miss a single page.
Very dark romance with the hero having murdered his brother and teh heroine a conflicted, sad photographer. Scences with Africia very beautifully done...paranormal elements in teh story with film.
