Where should I begin with this book? If it was the author's intent to reach into the very depths of the reader's heart and soul and pull out every emotion, taking them through the heights of fated love, happiness, joy, and forgiveness, while subsequently raking them over the coals of despair, jealousy, bitterness, grief, anguish, loss, suffering, and unparalleled heartbreak, then I say she has achieved that immensely.

A story that will stay with me a long time, caused a lot of emotion when I was reading it. Definitely will be on my reread list.

Oh gosh give me the sequel now! This book was so captivating that I couldn't put it down till the very end. An incredibly impressive debut book, the author have surely put the stake high so I can only wish her too keep doing what she had done here!
