I love books & listening to books! Rarely do I find one I just can't finish - this is one! It has a slow start and gives you nothing to hold on to to keep you interested in hanging in there to want to finish it! I didn't - finish it.... Maybe it is a great book, with a good ending..... I'll never know...
