Parts were really great, but overall it was a very average read for me. The romance is SEVERELY underdeveloped to the point that I wouldn't even consider this a romance. It does involve a cute little boy, a plane crash, and a fairly likable ...more
I just read someone elses review stating that they couldn't get past 50 pages. If I wasn't such a huge Kristin Hannah fan I may have abandoned it as well. Boy am I glad I didn't.
Initially I felt really disappointed in her story, it just wasn't her normal beautiful, deep story that all of her others are. It felt cheap, short and awkward. It didn't add up to me at all. However, when I got two thirds of t ...more

I found the writing to be extremely easy to read, flowed really well, it was a fairly quick read for me - 2 eveni ...more
I absolutely love Kristin Hannah and have read at least 10 of her books. This book is an easy read and enjoyable but the second half is just bizarre. Good and bizarre. Nothing like the other books I've read from Kristin Hannah. Read it and you'll know what I mean :)
