About the Author
EDITOR: Growing up I was the kid who would get into trouble for reading in class. My family was the one at the restaurant with noses buried in books. It was only natural that I would seek some way to make books a part of my career path. In March of 2014 I graduated from Portland State University with a MS in Technical Writing and Book Publishing. During my program I spent time as Acquisitions Manager and Project Manager with Ooligan Press, a student-run publishing house that is part of the graduate program. Since my graduation, I've started my own small business, taken over ownership of Portland Book Review, and worked as Project Manager at Spectacle Publishing Media Group before arriving here at Evolved Publishing. I read anything except for traditional westerns, and have a soft spot for historical fiction and YA. I tend to gravitate towards genre fiction (particularly science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure and all of the implied subgenres) and am a huge fan of comics and graphic novels. When I'm not reading or writing, I'm probably playing video games with my friends online. While I enjoy writing my own fiction on occasion, my greatest joy is helping fellow writers achieve their dream of publishing their work. I look forward to working with Evolved Publishing and making those dreams into reality. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

While there are strong elements of romance in this novel, it is not a light read. Amanda experiences anguish in nearly every way imaginable, and the author expertly works her research into Romani culture, as well as the Hungarian city of Pecs, into the work. The complexity of the problems experienced by the protagonist are brought to a satisfying, though multifaceted conclusion. My only complaint about the book is that the author, intent on making sure that readers know about the intense passion of the young couple for one another, repeatedly describes their displays of affection, which were mostly of a public nature. The book describes no actual sexual encounters, as such would fall outside Romani mores.
That aside, the book is a well researched page turner and highly recommended.
The pace of the book moved reasonably well and the characters were realistic.
The most interesting areas of the book for me revolved around the Romani culture and the conflicts that resulted for Amanda. The information she found about her grandfather was a secondary plot that added intrigue.
