    The story itself was good, but it lacked description I had to make up what the characters looked like myself people just ended up places One minute she s standing in a shop and next she was down at the warf It jumped around too much Did she go uphill, or down hill Conversations were not complete A conversation would start, and someone who I thought was speaking spoke, only to find out later that a third person appeared, so I would reread that part in the different head voice I think The story itself was good, but it lacked description I had to make up what the characters looked like myself people just ended up places One minute she s standing in a shop and next she was down at the warf It jumped around too much Did she go uphill, or down hill Conversations were not complete A conversation would start, and someone who I thought was speaking spoke, only to find out later that a third person appeared, so I would reread that part in the different head voice I think it had a VERY long Ess...

    The story was good but the last chapter seemed rushed Too many grammar, spelling and punctuation errors Bente s husband s name was Jimmy then James then Jeff And Randi was first spelled Randy then switched to Randi.

    There is a lot of promise to this book I couldn t grab the vision that Pat Amsden was trying to give me.The book seemed choppy and I had a hard time visualizing the characters It is a very short book and is great if you are looking for a light and quick read.
