3 Star Review by Cassie

I'm truly been sitting on this review for a few day's now. This is a hard one for me to write. I hate to say bad thing's about any book, but this is an honest review... so you'll get my honest opinion. Too much was going on, you can get lost.

I'm not sure what the plot was, since there was so much going on. In one story we get kidnapping, suicide attempt, more kidnapping, lies, amnesia, and so much more. Just too much!!

I'm not sure if it's meant for teens or adults. Still on the fence about that.

I'm never one to quit a book, and I like to give it a chance and I did with this one. It's not for me, but it could be your cup of tea. 

Donelle Knudsen was born in Portland, Oregon, the beautiful City of Roses, but has lived in Eastern Washington since 1988. She also writes short stories, poetry, and memoir, and owes her love of books and the craft of writing to her late father, who was never too busy to read to her or to make visits to the “big” library every Saturday. She then earned a B.S. in Arts & Letters from Portland State University and is a four-time finalist in the Pacific Northwest Writers Association’s literary contest in the memoir category. Her first book, “Through the Tunnel of Love, A Mother’s and Daughter’s Journey with Anorexia” was published in 2011.
