I would have given it even more than 4 stars and was debating as I read it whether I would give it 4.5 or 5, but some things towards the end brought it down a little for me.

I didn't really like the mystery subplot and thought that the truth disclosed in the end bordered on the ridiculous and melodramatic. Parts of Mary and Adam
