|Author: Kathleen McKenna|
This blurb came from Goodreads.
I think the blurb is quite informative and if I dwell more on what happens in the story I'll be spoiling it so let me talk about the characters (the MC to be specific).
This is one of those books that is probably in a setting like North and South or something you'll find in Mark Twain's book but 2011 or so. I'm in South Africa, never been to the states but I imagine its what the South is today. So you can sort of imagine the nature of person.
I also loved how Kathleen created real complex (or as writers say) three dimentoinal charaters throughout, whether they were central or supporting roles. They all have great depth, example the MC who appears frivolous, promiscuous and gold digging in her ways on the surface and yet is dealing with the violent and unxplained death of her only sibling with such dignity and also unexpectedly displays ultruistic characteristics in surprising ways.
Her over protective friend is also dealing with family dilemnas that really move you and her dad, the strong man who is SUPPOSED to be holding it all together........these all add to the authenticity of Te characters.
