Normally I love stories about strong-willed women w/ red hair. In fact I feel a deep bond w/ women of this nature. Usually I give a book three chapters, and if it doesn't grab me by that point I won't read it. I could NOT finish this book. Maybe it was just bad timing for me, but it was a book that I had to 'make' myself read.
