I couldn't give this story 5 stars because I think it could do with some fleshing out of both the main story and the side stories, but I had to give it a 4 because it shows a tragic love, a new love, and an enduring and painful love, and shows all three in a very beautiful way. The one that really got to me, though, was the love between Alice and her mother. We really don't get to see them together until the end when Alice really begins to understand that, though her mother and her love is not perfect, it's still very real. I also enjoyed how it had Alice struggling to maintain her world while not painting her as a tragic martyr. If the writer had portrayed her that way, I don't think the story would have been half as touching nor Alice even a fraction as likeable.
