This is a love story depicting good love relationships and destructive ones. It is a frustrating, hard to read book at times. There are some “feel good” romantic moments but many more gritty, tough, hard to accept ones.
It takes a little while to get deep into the action but once it does it will have you hooked. Interesting perspective about life in Alaska and living through the cold and dark winters. Love that it’s from a teenage girl perspective.
I read Thor, Silva, Baldacci, Childs, Van Lustbaden, Taylor, Iles, C.Hahhah, Phillips, Baldwin- this was by far the one novel that really touched my heart and made me cry. It was so well written. I almost gave up at the beginning with all the “ wife beatings”, but I stuck with it and was rewarded in the end. Lee
The author took great pains to develop characters that have true depth! Great read
This was the best book I have read in a long time. The depth of the characters and the descriptions of the area were both heartwarming and gut wrenching. A wonderful read.
I have always enjoyed Kirsten Hannah books; however this is the most depressing, implausible book I’ve read in a long time. The storyline was horrible and just kept getting worse; I continued reading thinking it would have to get better but it never did. The information about life in Alaska was interesting; however the storyline was so depressing, so frustrating, and so predictable it was horrible. I absolutely do not recommend this book!
Loved this book! Great summer read! Didn’t want to put it down!
