Sometimes when I read a book, I am aware of how the author probably wants me to feel, but just don't feel it deeply from the heart. I have to tell you this is not the case with Ms. Gamet's writing. This is the second book I have read by her. I enjoyed them both. This particular story evoked raw and true emotions that felt as if the happenings were going on in real life, and not just in a story. I thought it held enough promise to be a full length novel. It was a great story, and had enough background that it could surely have lasted. I prefer full length novels, but this author's work has been worth reading at any length.
I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
