Becky did you know the author died while writing and her niece finished it? I'm assuming you knew that since there were 2 authors lol. I'll shut up now.

I didn't know that until after I finished the book and read some other reviews. I'd just thought it was a co-author situation, like Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett writing Good Omens, or Stephen King and Peter Straub writing The Talisman.

It does make sense that the change in focus would come from someone else finishing the book... though it doesn't change my opinion or review at all.

Sure, I just thought it might bring some clarity. Glad you enjoyed it!

Wish I could include an extra 'like' for the phrase "book polygamy." :)

Becky - I have an extremely close friend who lives with her husband off the coast of England on an island, but it's not a channel (chunnel) island, it's off Dorset, right at the southernmost end of the country proper. It's called Portland, and it has some of the most unique geological features I've ever, ever noticed. If you get a chance, check the 2 or 3 videos she's posted about the island. One's called "Durdle Door", after my favorite place, next to Stonehenge, on the planet (They both lie right at the intersection of two ley lines.)she calls herself "Mrs. Maloney or Mahoney, I forget which --- but the music she's paired with these videos is gorgeous - Enya, I think.
