really liked it


This was an interesting take on "Little Red Riding Hood" and actually quite different than I expected it to be. It was a story about a girl and two cousins that covers a long period of time, from children to adults, from happy birthday's to wedding bells, through pain and rejection to love and friendships. This was a love story of epic proportions and even though it was a triangle, it was so much more too.

Virginia or Ginger, is a young girl who has been sheltered by her mother and grew up with the two best friends she could ever ask for. She sees the good in everything, she doesn't want to let anyone down and does as she is told. Despite her sheltered upbringing, she is feisty and quick. Josiah Woodsman is the light, good-hearted, golden boy. He is safe and smart, attractive and kind. Cain Wolfram is the dark, bad-boy with a reputation to match. He is a jerk and foul, devastatingly attractive and a player. Josiah and Cain are cousins but their relationship goes much deeper than that, as they are more like brothers. They have love and respect for one another and when one stakes his claim on Ginger the other takes a step back regardless of his feelings. One is good for her, one is made for her and one steals her heart. While she loves them both fiercely her love for them is different.

In this book we watch them grow from children, to teenagers, to adults, to grown-ups. There are parts that rip your heart out, parts that will make you laugh, parts that give you butterflies. It is really a journey and as with real life there are unexpected turns that you could never predict. Life is a funny thing and sometimes things don't always turn out as you expect. This was my first book by this author and not my last. She told a story in which you felt like you were there, like your heart was wrapped up with the characters and your soul was tethered to these three friends.
