One of the best books I've read in a long time. I really enjoyed all the different storylines and how the four different strangers came together in a crisis. Not a lot of romance, mostly relationships of women. Good reading.
This was a great book, loved the storyline and it's way of leaving a hint of mystery to the tale.Touching at times how tragedy can bring people who were once strangers closer together. I read this book in 2 days,i didn't want to put it down!
