I can only pretend to understand losing your husband and 2 small children 6 months before in a terrible fire, causing such a depresion and making her want to end her own life. But this cause was not the main reason for her petty behavior, it was just one of many problems she felt she had.
I could not stand to hear her whining and telling David she was not good enough for him or that she was afraid she would cause his death.
So, I just scanned ahead in the book until finally something started to happen (Go to Chapter 16 !!!
The first half of the book was more about Samantha getting over the lost of her family. As someone that has almost the same family set up I couldn't even bring myself to try and put myself in her shoes, it was to sad for me. But I could really understand her reluctance when it came to David, I wouldn't want someone new to show up in my life so soon after something so horrific. But at the same time half of what went on could have been taken out. I felt like I was getting told the same exact thing over and over again.
The second half of the book was more interesting, but I still felt confused as to everything that was going on. But it wasn't because things aren't explained, its just that no one got the answers I wanted either. There is still a lot of talking, I think that is one thing that bothered me about this book. Everyone talked all the time, like full on speeches sometimes, that I felt like everything was being told to me. I would have rathered had more inner dialogue and maybe point of view shifts instead of speeches. This way I could start to figure things out for myself, and then see if I got it right or not later in the book instead of being told all the time.
But all of that aside, I did enjoy the read. A new idea that I have never come across is always exciting for me. I was eager to know what was going to happen, and to see all the new things that popped up. The last half of the book was like this, new things kept happening, and even though I felt like I was left in the dark with a lot of things I still want to know what is going to happen.
One thing I would like to have cleared up for me is Samantha's age. I never really got a clear answer, I know she perceived herself older then David. At one point I thought she was 25, but if that is the case she would have literally had to have gotten married straight out of high school and popped her son out right away, and this just didn't seem to fit in with her personality.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, it was pretty interesting.
