I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.
So close to perfect. Every other Fremantle novel I have read has driven me to a puddle of mush by the end. This novel came close but just didn't quite make it. While I felt for Arbella, I just didn't like the Ami subplot. Ami as the story's vessel just didn't work for me as much as someone like Levina from Sisters of Treason.
