Just a normal tale of boy meets girl, dislikes everything she stands for and mis-trusts her deeply, coupled with a mother who knows better and burgeoning love, but what was different was just how beautifully this was written.
A 5 star read all the way, and I found it difficult to put down. All along I was willing them to come together and realise how perfect they were, for each other and together.
There is no doubt that I will read more by this truly inspiring author.
