I have mixed feelings about this book. I stayed up late to finish it on one hand, but there were some aspects that I didn't like.

What I didn't like: Why do authors so often put in a creepy dude? Mr. Tillerton stalked Rosa and was totally inappropriate. While believable, I didn't like that aspect of the story.
Also, I thought the reason for marriage was shaky (I would say more, but I don't want to give away the book). I wish that Weston had found another way that honored Rosa's feelings.

What I did like: It was so much like the book of Ruth! How cool is that? I also loved some of the Hispanic culture that was brought in. While I feel it was weak at times, it added a lot to the story.

Overall, I liked Caught in the Middle better than this book, but this was a nice, one time read.
