"There are rare occasions when a plot, characters, dialogue, and backdrop align to make an inspiring book. This is one of those times. This book was a tumultuous, all-encompassing love story. I fell in love with every aspect of this book. The plot was intricate and engaging. I was caught on page one. The story unfolded beautifully at just the right pace. The plot explored a plethora of topics, from family obligations versus responsibility to the delicate intricacies of different types of love. This was an intimate exploration of responsibility and love. I was laughing and crying throughout the entire book. Ms. Golden made me care for these characters; I was 100% invested.
