Yeaaah, okay. This has a lot of shit I very much dislike -- hidden identities! poverty that isn't! -- and much more that I do like. The lovering is irrational; the lovers are humane; the impediments are significant.

Hmm, I feel like this review is harsh. It was a charming and sweet and sultry book; parts made me laugh aloud. I liked it. Not perfect, but more than good enough.
