Pam Borchaz offers a thought-provoking story about longing, obligation, and the powers of persuasion.

I wish there was a sequel for this book, but I really like the ending as well. For me, this novel was better than the novel Candor by the same author. The story and the growth of the main character Ruby was intriguing and I felt compelled to keep reading this novel. Excellent and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys developments of a main character !

The other book by this same author, Candor, was better by far
