I've really been enjoying all the books by this author lately. I don't know whether its the stories themselves or just enjoying following these people and this town through the years. This book was no exception. I was interested from the start and found the end of the book a little bit frustrating - not from any writing problem but because it ended! Good thing I have book two from the library already and I can pick up and keep reading.
Its nice to see a bit more of Astrid, finally, and her dilemma is interesting to read about. Not unlike places where I have been before. It was easy to identify with her. Something important in books, I think.
