It's not about reading to impress anyone else. It's about reading for the sheer enjoyment of it all...
Not gonna lie here - I was extremely disappointed in this story. I was on Amazon reading some reviews - all glowing about how this story "touched their heart" and "educational" about this time in history. What?! I didn't take any of that from this story. It started out interestingly enough with a newspaper reporter (our hero?) snapping a photo of two little boys and a "For Sale" sign... but then it turned into this sort of love triangle thing between 3 characters (none of whom I ever cared about), a "secret" past (give me a break!) and - oh yes, a mob connection! Just my opinion here, but I felt like the author really didn't know which direction to take this story. She went the wrong way for this reader.
This is a book club read for me - we will discuss it this month.
And now, on to more enjoyable books!
