This book has many strengths (esp its vivid descriptions) and I felt the author did a great job of conveying how it must feel to be torn apart by conflicting desires/values. But in the end, for me the story lacked the complexity and the depth which would have made it an outstanding book. A bit too predictable when it should not have been, and not so believable at other times when it should have been. A good effort though and I think the author's talent clearly comes across.
