Vija is a wonderful voice to tell the story. The blend of cultures apparent from her young immigration to America is tastefully done, and created a much richer plot. Vija is definitely a realistic character. She is hardworking and cares about her family. She doesn't have a lot of experience with romance, so when she gets the attention of a man, she is a little naive and not unbelievably headstrong. However, she is still able to stand up for herself when the moment arises. I fully enjoyed reading from her perspective..."
