    "couldn't get through it"

    I listened for about a hour and went back to the website to see if this book was in the Juvenile Fiction category. It was not. The story line was interesting enough, but there has to be more to the development of a relationship between characters than "looking deeply into each others' eyes." This happened one too many times for me and I wasn't halfway through the book. I don't plan to go back and finish it.

    "Enjoyable"

    A great listen. Typical of Luanne Rice's other works this book has strong character and plot development and a well defined and delivered emotional context.

    "enjoyable"

    Slow at first, but enjoyable once you get into it. The descriptions of the landscapes were my favorite part.
