This was my first but not my last book by Mindy McGinnis. I very much enjoyed her writing style and the voices she gave her characters. They are well developed, and I connected with them easily. Lynn and Eli’s relationship is so sweet and innocent. I loved the banter between this “country girl” and “city boy.”
I was drawn into Lynn’s story from the very beginning, fell in love with certain characters along the way, and shed more than a few tears near the end. I very much look forward to continuing the series with In a Handful of Dust, which takes place ten years in the future. This installment may not have had the happily-ever-after I originally envisioned, but that’s okay… because sometimes, that’s life. The important thing is to find inspiration and empowerment in those endings; and thanks to Lynn, I definitely did.
