I was so excited to read this book having read others of hers and enjoying them. This book I found to be disappointing however.

I felt like I didn't have a good background of the characters and how they related to each other. It seemed like there were too many people wih too little background information.

While I don't doubt that many people live the way that the main characters live it seems like a lot of information is assumed that the reader will know and I don't find that to be the case. Also they seem to pull in other characters who have no trouble adjusting to the rustic and sudden way of life which seemed also unlikely.

Overall I felt like it was a waste of time reading and couldn't get into the book because I found so much of it bad and unbelievable.
