Reviews

Complex, endearing characters


(5 stars)

As usual Butler's characters are vivid and engaging, but I also found myself rooting for them through their faults and foibles. The story outlined moral complexities which are so very human. Thank you so much for the reading!

couldn't keep my mind off it


(5 stars)

Cutest most American story ever! Kept me going until the very end. I wish I could hear what happened after this "happily ever after" though.
