really liked it
bookshelves: religious

A tough read for me. The author spends a large amount of time in 'flowery' descriptions, which I found myself skipping over in exasperation. I do think it was well written, though. This book for me was like eating a large helping of vegetables....you're left feeling like you ate a healthy meal, which is fine, but now you're ready to move on to dessert! So yes, it was a good book, but my next book will be a lot lighter for sure!
