While winter rages outside in the city and the snow relentlessly keeps falling, she thinks back on times past - both good times and bad.

What did she in fact do at the crossroads of life, and were her choices right or all wrong? The choices... They were many, and some had consequences larger than one person could handle. Did she choose well

The words flickered to life as my eyes swept over the inked emotions on every pages... This book has tingled all my senses as though I'm on a roller coaster of hope and devastation.

In this book, the protagonist pens her journey and hidden reflections over a life that she should have lived and the kind of life that she had.

This book is beautifully written, and minimalist. There are only two characters that we can "see" in this book, the main character who is reflecting upon her life from childhood to middle-age, while writing in her diary in her Spartan but comfortable apartment, and her cat.
