I just loved this book. It took me through such a range of emotions. When I first started reading, there wasn't much info on Jack to where you could really feel like you knew him, but still I was so sad for Kathryn for losing her husband. As time went on and I got to know more about him through the flash backs, I was so sad for him that he had died. I kept thinking ahead to how the book would end, but it totally twisted in the way I didn't expect. I suddenly hated Jack. I hated a fictional character that I barely knew - for all the pain that Kathryn would endure after learning about his other life. I felt her pain as she traveled to London and I felt her pain as she realized that she didn't really know Jack at all. I knew she and Robert would end up together, and part of me was glad as that's how I wanted it to end, but yet part of me thought that it wrapped up just too nicely. I had hoped for a different ending, but was satisifed with the way it ended. This book grabbed my attention almost immediately and I always felt as though I couldn't wait to sit back down to continue reading.
