A really good book that tells about the love between a father and a daughter and the father and a city. And how that man refuses to put his wife and daughter before that city. The characters were so believsble. At times, the book brought tears to my eyes. Our book club just read it and everyone in the group gave the book a "thumbs up".

Like the other reviewers, this book kept my interest and attention to the end. I, also, read it until it was finished, in one sitting. The author writes in a way that pulls you in and makes you feel that you are seeing it all. Loved it.
