This book has a daring plot and tough themes, yet manages to maintain an uplifting and heart-warming tone. There are light moments and laughter. There are tense moments and angst. There are moments that reduced me to ugly crying. All of those things make this one of my favorite romance books ever.
The writing is all but invisible. As a reader, I fell into this story and no jarring typos or formatting problems pulled me out. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, which is why I rated it Five out of five stars.
