It is a great read and I eagerly look forward to her next book.
Author Cristina Garcia writes in a literary style with vivid descriptions of characters and surroundings that never interferes with the story-telling.

Great style of writing and use of vocabulary. Boring book that dealt on life's negatives and dark areas. Not enough character development of the "Lady".Published 10 months ago by barda
