I have read this book twice. Due to the brain fog associated with CFS, I am no longer able to write long reviews. It is difficult many days to even think of the right words, but I can say you will not regret reading this book. One reviewer complained about the length, but I found it too short. I am used to reading BIG books. Alicia has written a book that is spellbinding and you don't want the story to end. The characters feel like real people that you meet everyday. A character who has lost her career, living with a chronic illness and still finding love and understanding. I will be reading it again and again. There are not many books about people living with chronic illness. It is wonderful to read about someone who is able to live with the disease and still have a life worth living. I can't wait to read the sequels. Alicia, job well done!
