The story was both exciting, suspenseful, romantic, and beautifully written. I was on the edge of my seat.
Along with a crackling good plot, I loved the four main characters. These were people you can really care about, each in their own way - people I would welcome into my life in a heart beat.
Not an easy question, because they were all so engaging. I loved Kiernan, for his boyishness & mischievous qualities, but also for his empathy & caring, and a wisdom beyond his years. But equally strong cases could be made for the loyalty, courage and endearing qualities of the other three main characters: Matt and his sister in law, and Kiernan's sister Aiden.
The author's ability to bring out the essence of her characters is uncanny - even in small things like the quirky humorous tee shirts that Kiernan loves to wear. I found myself laughing out loud in a number of spots, but also needing the kleenex at some of the more moving passages. Other times I was ready to cheer.
It would be either Matt or Kiernan. That's a tough choice; they're both terrific characters for different reasons.
This is just an all around brilliant book. Truly first rate, with engaging characters you wish you knew, and a story line that never lets up. Many passages I simply had to listen to twice, or even three times, before allowing myself to go on. You just want to savor them. It's really that good.
I hope Ms. Copland comes out with many more books. There's such a lot of mediocrity out there; we need more writing on this level. Finally, I can't imagine a more perfect dramatization than that delivered by Mr. LeFleur. He did justice to this wonderful, suspenseful, feel-good story.
So I say again . . . just brilliant!
