      I d been trying to get around to reading this for some time, after the synopsis caught my eye I read it in 2 days, and found I couldn t get on with the other things I was meant to be doing until I d finished it.The author planted little clues along the way, so there were no great surprises for me, as I do like to be a bit of a detective, as I read, and I picked up on her clues In other instances, my over active imagination got me there and I was delighted to be proven right.However, the crux of [...]

      I was drawn to this book because it had a promising story line and great reviews It was very hard to find, which made it even intriguing Finally, I found a used copy online and had it shipped from England It stayed on my bookshelf for months tempting me and I kept putting it off just so I could keep the excitement going.One chapter in and I could tell I was in for a huge disappointment The coincidences were ridiculously plentiful and contrived and the writing was amateurish at best The transiti [...]

      I did enjoy this book although I guessed the back story pretty much at the beginning That didn t spoil it There was a LOT of repetition and constant crying with a couple of the leading females in this and that started to bore me a little and so I got a bit bogged down around two thirds of the way in.It s an interesting tale of a daughter trying to trace her father and learn about where she came from but with than a twist It was set in 1997 and in one instance using the number 141 was mentioned [...]

      This was tough to finish since the book could have been completed in about 3 chapters It just kept going on and on about the same thing that you, as the reader, already know is inevitablly going to happen It s a shame, since the 1st chapter really had me and was making it seem that it could be really interesting.
