Read in November, 2009

Drama, drama, drama. This reads like a Brazilian soap opera.
I quite liked it even if I knew exactly where it was going around the page 120. This is your typical story about women with its usual themes of love, betrayal, pregnancy, motherhood.
What I liked most about the book is probably the setting which is Trinidad and Tobago. It was written in the first person in a rather simple style but the descriptions were captivating.
It definitely calls for a sequel.

Alan I'll tell Amanda tonight that you want a sequel. She's in my writer's group and it's her turn tonight - her new novel is definitely not a sequel, but she may write one in future.
Yes her descriptions are great - she's just come back from 6 weeks in Trinnie (as she calls it) and the new work is set there too.

Kinga Tell her I said hi! :))))

Alan I will

Alan she says hi back - she's not contemplating a sequel. But you never know...
Her new one sarts off in Tobago actually, modern day, but moves on to Trinidad.
