I am ambivalent about this book. In the beginning I felt I liked it and then I wondered where it was going. When it came to the present I was thoroughly confused. Finally when the past and present were tied together I got engrossed in the book. I'm not sure I'd have behaved like Liv but well she's Moyes's character and it's the authors prerogative to create a character in any mold she chooses. The tale has enough twists and turns to keep the reader engrossed but I'll have to say this is not one of JoJo Moyes's better works.
