It has been a number of years since I've read anything by Gilbert Morris. I had forgotten what a fantastic writer he is. He has created wonderful characters in Lafayette Riordan and Rosa Ramirez. I thoroughly enjoyed his development and presentation of each of them. He also created a fairly large group of supporting characters that were equally well developed. I was quickly drawn into the story and found that I needed to finish the book to find out what happened in their lives. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
The author of this book is well known. I thought because he is a best seller that I would love the book and not want to put it down. I was so disappointed! I gave this book 4/5 stars. I thought the story was very slow, had too many descriptions and the characters were not very likable. I did enjoy the setting of the book and thought some of the minor characters were actually very interesting. On the other hand, the main characters of Lafayette and Rosa where just not that fascinating. Their interactions were not entertaining at all. All that said, you may enjoy it more than me so don't let my opinion stop you from reading it!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
