novel is interesting, but it was not my favorite. The other two titles shared recently One Good Thing and The Houseat Mermaid Point are definite favorites. The story has a great plot. I loved
how she wove the back story of the
character of Emma throughout the story. The character that most resonated with
me is Mackenzie. She is married but has not children. All authors love their characters to grow and
Mackenzie’s arc is how does she feel not having children? Could readers identify with a childless
marriage? I too am older and would love
to be married with children. I understand this struggle.
