1/5; 1 star; DNFI know a lot of people loved this book but I had to abandon it. Lying, cheating and just plain bad behaving characters really annoy me. The trope I hate in this book is the one where no one ever has an honest conversation so bad shit is just perpetuated ad nauseum. No thanks.

As I was reading this book I was thoroughly enjoying it. However it is very, very similar in both style, structure and almost plot-point by plot-point to an earlier book, A Place to Call Home. Now, A Place to Call Home is a slam-dunk 5-star read that has a proud and permanent home on my favorites ...

This is the first book I've read from Katherine Allred and it was phenomenal! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED everything about this book!It's one of those stories that sticks with you... that when you have a quiet moment, some part of the story will 'pop' into your head, and take you right back to the moment you...
