I finished this book only out of stubbornness.I just kept getting angry at Martha and her wrong choices.How submissive can one person be?. I could not believe how one woman could let a one night stand manipulate her whole life.I wanted a magical story but got a story of depression. I gave it three stars because it did provoke emotion only not the one I was looking for!
