I came across this book randomly from a book review website and decided to give it a try. And I love it! I'm really glad that I did not give this book a miss. It's beautifully written. I just can't put it down!
The storyline and the characters are well developed. I love to see how the heroine grow throughout the whole story. From hiding behind as a victim closed to being raped, to bravely stand out to do the right thing to report to the authority, the author has done a good job in showing how the victim, the family and the community reacts in such sensitive issue. On top of that, the author did a very good job on the plot, and the development of the characters. Lucas, appeared mysterious and complicated at the beginning. But as I read more and more about him, he had my full respect. He's not only smart, but he's hardworking and independent. And he knew what's the right thing to do. I like the way he treated Jacqueline, how he won her heart, slowly and naturally. I was immersed to the story right from the beginning. There were several parts that I just could not hold back my tears. This book was simply amazing.
I enjoy reading this book very much. It is one of my favorite. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars.
