This book is what I call a light right. It's not really something to dwell on or think about too much. I read it to pass the time. Let's just say the main character starts off with a lot of room to...grow...as a person. She's not exactly likable, but then, for me, I don't mind an unlikable heroine IF that contributes to making the story more interesting--which in this case, it did. Jan Weston, the character I am referring to here, just grow a lot as a character as well throughout the entire arc of the story, and I think that wouldn't have been as possible or as profound if she had started out likable in the first place. So for all these reasons, I really admire the author's bravery in writing such a well-rounded and realistic character. IT really made the story for me. Aside from character development and romance, there isn't much to this story. It's just a pleasure read. Well done.
