and unwisely but tries to be a better mother than she felt hers was Ida her story pulls everything together the reader can So I made it about halfway through this book before throwing in the towel Here s why1 I m used to loving a book r at least being invested in the characters enough that it s hard to put it down That was not the case with this book I read it because I had nothing else to do But stopping at any point was not difficult and I didn t feel strongly compelled to pick it up again2 The STORY WAS SLOW MOVING WITHOUT BEAUTIFUL PROSE TO MAKE was slow moving without beautiful prose to make for the lack f plot The writing was The Other Islam only so so3 There s enough bad stuff in the world without seeking itut in my entertainment The profanity was a big turn Last Man Standing offReally justne Light, Gesture, and Color of those reasons would have been enough to give upn this book and find something better my to read shelf is big enough but I thought because it was both

seemed rather uncharacteristicf Christine the mother to abandon Ray Granted she was never the picture Toxic Game (A GhostWalker Novel) of maternal stability but to just leave without another word when she hadn t ever done that before was too muchf a stretch for me to believe Three women who are three generations in an American Indian family tell their perspectives Canada on the same story and reveal secretsI had technical difficulties for the bulkf the beginning and middle I didn t believe the actions The Queens Fool / The Virgins Lover of a priest after he committed a no no and I didn t believe he got away with it without uestioningr conseuences I could not suspend my disbelief when the 15 year Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, old who had almost no horse experience suddenly rode a

know it s strange you live in a place half your life and yet the sight Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant of it from an unfamiliar angle can still surprise you it was as though I had never before seen that building so small and hollowedut against the treeless landThis uote can be true about a home The Last Great Revolution or a placeften visited that we may cherish Shining City or perhaps even

These are peopleften family SOS or close friends that we spend time with maybe grow up living alongside and believe we come to know and understand thoroughly Yet there is always another angle another

favorite characters in the book Evelyn and Sky were introduced in Rayona s story They were perhaps unlikely heroes which again goes to show that what we perceive Resist (Wicked Ways Book 1) on theutside does not necessarily reflect what lies just below the surface Christine s story was eually absorbing but also perhaps the most frustrating to me as a mother myself Having lived through a
