    What an original premise! I loved the book, the fairly in-depth look at each of the characters was handled beautifully. I do have to say that the ending was either a lazy was to end it or its left room for a sequel. It's got to be one of those two endings, I can't imagine a book being as good a read as this one was....ending like that. I almost subtracted a star just for that cheap ending!
  • Loved this book!

    This book grabbed me from the first page. I instantly felt an ability to connect to this authors characters, she writes in such a vivid way the scenes and images resonate beautifully. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to get lost for a little while in the lives of others.
  • So good!

    I thought the book was really good! The author did a great job of keeping your mind wondering. I thought the BIRDIE section was dry but once I got past it I found myself not being able to put the book down. The book requires focus and I even had to reread The first section. A definite must buy especially @$1.99!

    Goodness....I became emotionally involved. 3 stories in one, each connected to the other, yet still very distinct. Worth the money.
  • I read in less than 24 hours!

    I was drawn into the lives of her characters and couldn't wait to turn the page and find out where their lives were going. I also agree the husband was a terrible person and I found nothing redeeming about his character. Worth the download!
