3.5 stars.
I found it difficult to read. Illegal immigrant meets and falls in love with PTSD-stricken Iraq vet plus a racist ex-con in the picture - interesting and relevant characters, right? But their tragic story somehow gets lost in the poorly executed writing. And that’s really just my beef with this novel.
