Product description


Amman's writing is addictive, candid, hilarious, and evocative as she describes the powerful conflict between irresistible attraction and common sense --Renni Acre, author of His Huntress

One of the best - and definitely the worst - thing about this book is it is SO HARD to put down! Sometimes in life, you just can't wait to see what happens... it's the same with Leda. Well written, engaging, some really good insight and tips for life. FANTASTIC! --Susan Byrde, author of Bruce's Fall

I really loved this book. It appears this is going to be a series and I'm anxious to see how it goes. I loved the setting, the time period, and the characters. I felt this was beautifully and truthfully written. The author captures the 90's feel very well. I think that Leda's list for happiness transcends time and is just as applicable now. Leda is a smart, strong character who is learning not to be afraid of being herself. --Autumn Friedli, Librarian

Author Interview:

You are a scientist and a college professor. What made you start writing novels?
My life was unusual, and after making all possible mistakes, I have found happiness in unexpected ways. After a lifetime of hearing “You should write a book about this!” I did, and my story turned into a whole series.
So, are the books based on your life?
Yes, they are. Although the novels are fictionalized to protect the privacy of people around me.
Who would enjoy this novel?
Anyone searching for their own way, travelers, wanderers, and people who enjoy witty realistic fiction and foreign cultures.

4.0 out of 5 starsI have a love-hate relationship with this book. It started well, the middle bit was endless, and the ending was pretty good.
