This book would have been better if they would have cut out all of the descriptions that were used. Too much "The wind is blowing, it was cold, etc". I wanted the author to get to the point already. Other than that a very sad story about the love between a husband and wife and the secrets that are kept between them. Although I enjoyed the book it was just ok because of all the extra that was there.

Sonja I totally agree with you.

Robin I am listening to the audio version and I don't think I will make it to disc 2 because of the descriptions!

Chrissy Snider Definitely over-descriptive. Almost unnecessarily in fact. That almost ruined a very good story.

Judy Neger I so agree with you. i'm in the middle of this book and don't know if i will continue. every page i'm waiting for something to happen. very slow book
