This is one of the strangest books I’ve ever read. I didn’t like it at first, because it is so confusing. The reader is kept in the dark about most things. Characters (and there’s lots of them) and conversations are introduced and I had no idea who they were or how they would fit into the story. Clues are revealed very slowly, and I did not like this technique. A little of it would have been fine, but not to the extent that it was done. Many chapters would end in the middle of something and not be picked up in the following chapters, which was very frustrating. There were also some little inconsistencies. For example Abby’s mother had been Hispanic, but Abby had strawberry blond hair or sometimes just blond. There were a few confusing sentences, like “I worse can’t see them abusing their kids.” Otherwise, it was clean grammatically. Despite all this, I did like the book. The main characters had been through a lot and put each other through a lot, but they were loveable. From a little over half way on, enough had been revealed that I wasn’t quite as lost. The closer I got to the end, the better it got. It is definitely worth reading, but don’t give up on it too soon. I was tempted to do just that for a while.
The characters are very realistic and the development of the relationships between them keeps you turning the pages.
I haven't gotten to the end, trying to wait on my book club members, but i don't know if I'll be able to hold out. Lol.
The beginning had some scenes that were a bit confusing, but that was part of the charm of this story that kept me reading, wanting to know what the passages meant. And all was explained in the end, just like I'd hoped it would be.
The romance and tension between Stone and Abigail was touching and believable, and such a lovely bud to watch come into full bloom. Combine that with a powerful message about how we are all broken vessels with a Savior who longs to use us, even in our brokenness, and you have a lovely story that will stick with you long after you turn the last page.
I will definitely be looking for more stories from Case in the future!
I liked this book and found it to be a very interesting topic, however, I struggled with being confused at certain points as I read it. While the flashbacks, dreams, random conversations, and e-chat dialogue that is inserted at various points of the story added to the mystery of what really happened with Abigail’s marriage and with Stone’s upbringing, I just had a lot of trouble navigating through those sections and understanding what was going on. Once I passed the halfway point in the book, more information was revealed that helped me follow the story better.
The romance between Stone and Abigail is tumultuous, as would be expected between two people who suffered so much. I really enjoyed the portions of the story when Stone and Abigail made some headway in their relationship. The author did a great job of creating tension between these two!
I found this story to be interesting and complex. (3.5 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
