"Time present and time pastThose lines by TS Eliot came back when I read this novel. Intriguing and timely,especially with questions of racism arising again to make us question our own values. ... a romance enriched with exciting elements of danger and intrigue."

This is the third book in a series and I didn’t know that going into this book, so I would recommend picking up the other books before you start this one as it will be easier for you to follow and more enjoyable.
This piqued my interest because of its exploration of psychology, the mind, and human nature. Those are some of my favorite topics being a psychology student. Anytime I can analyze characters and see great development I get super exciting. I enjoy reading about the motives behind why people do what they do. This just left me lacking more.
The book follows the main character Leilani who is a sheltered child. She is suddenly pulled from her life and school by her mother. Who puts her on a plane and they move to America. As a character, she is shy, quiet, and often quite awkward. She is forever cautious and very careful. She says away from relationships and is deeply afraid of losing people and getting close to them. She was quite a relatable character in many ways and I enjoyed that.
Overall this book was okay. The storyline and writing were interesting but lacking depth. The pace was far too slow and at points, I found myself just wishing it would be over. I thought the ending was little more exciting but it was quite predictable. It was a pleasant and insightful read. I am glad I gave it a chance even with its many issues.
Leilani's character is somber, quiet, and offers a certain level of maturity infused with sadness. She is forever playing cautious, careful never to get too involved with anyone and always biding her emotions. Her career choice as a healer further strengthens this description of hers. She doesn't really like to have fun, and is quite content with her quiet life in California.
Justin on the other hand has a penchant for humour, a twinkle in his eyes, and an affinity for cooking. When Leilani rescues him from an attack on the street, she vows to keep her distance. But can't.
Just then, she learns the truth about her father and along with Justin, sets out to extradite him from her island country. Overall, this is a nice book. The story is quite interesting, and Leilani's character is built very well. However, it does seem slow in places and kind of slacks off in between, though it does catch up again around the end. Overall, a pleasant read.
