** spoiler alert ** It didn't 'touch' me as it should, I wanted it to be more naughty boy on boy action, I wanted them to run away together, but I suppose loving each other was just going to be enough. The description of the tree put my heart and mind at peace, but the next 250 pages, not so great, I loved when the two characters met up again but I didn't think this translation was very good - it had several spelling mistakes which is a bit tragic.
