Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story dragged because the narrator was flat and uninteresting. I will avoid any book with that narrator because no matter how good a story it will get lost. A real waste of a credit.

Would you recommend The Will to your friends? Why or why not?

The author writes light fluff stories you can escape with. This one dragged because of the narrator couldn't hold my attention. Her other books have been enjoyable.

Could you see The Will being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Hard to tell as I just couldn't finish the book due to the narrator.

Captivating and fast paced. I am looking forward to reading more from this talented writer. Not my normal genre but worth the venture.
