My advice to you would be to not read this book....until you are able to treat yourself to a slice of time which will allow you the luxury of reading it from cover to cover in one sitting.
The main characters in this book reach out from the pages to welcome you into their world. The dialogue is exquisite, crafted in such a way that it burns into your mind. It left me incapable of putting the book down for more than a few minutes without burning with desire to find out what happened next.
Between the covers of this absorbing book resides an opportunity to observe another world, one that many of us will never enter and that some of us wish they did not have to. It is a tale of strong contrasts. The reader is presented with vicarious experiences such as the sensation of being held at knife point. Yet there is an underlying message of good love and hope, of the potential for realisation of dreams by overcoming fears and looking beyond the situations that threaten to overwhelm. I read the last page with a smile on my face and a feeling of lightness shimmering inside.
