I loved the sound of this book, but by the end of it I found myself rather disappointed and slightly bored.

The book had a good start, and I really did feel that the author was setting the scene for a really emotive journey. However as the book went on, and years and years were passing I started to wonder exactly where the plot was heading and why it was taking so long to get there.

I ended the book feeling very frustrated, as there did not seem to be any definite plot to the book and I did not see the point of it at all. The book did detail a whole childhood, adolescence and early adulthood... but then just ended.

I felt that the book was a continuous back story, almost half a book really. There was much detail and scene setting, but no real direction or objective for the book.

It left me feeling unfulfilled and disappointed. A shame really as the author obviously has talent which was shown with some very beautiful descriptions and similes throughout the book.
