This was essentially your run of the mill rom-com novel: due to a catastrophe's, girl's life changes and she ends up relocating. Girl meets boy. Girl makes mistake with boy. Girl realizes mistake. Boy forgives girl. Boy and girl end up together. Happily ever after. However, this book wasn't completely tedious because it was broken up with flashbacks -entire chapters actually- of the girl's grandmother's adult life. I found it incredible intriguing from the sheer fact that the majority of the novel's setting is in Tasmania. As a sociology minor, I loved seeing this different cultural everyday. And, on top of the different culture, the reader is presented it in different time periods: mainly 2009 and the 1930s, but we also glimpse it from the 1960s. Overall, if I hadn't the free time today that I did have, I think it would have taken me much longer to finish reading it. However, it wasn't boring, just not fabulous; I would say pretty average. But I do set the bar high for my books.
