Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the whole thing. It pulls you in from the beginning, and I really enjoyed Ruth Cherry’s voice and story writing style. The characters and subplots (or sections, parts of Anne’s life) were well developed and not predictable, and the conversations were some of the absolute best I’ve come across in a long time. The dialogue was genuine and real, like how real people talk. The characters were all interesting and well-conceived—flamboyant and important, interesting and insightful in their own way. I liked watching it all  unfold and seeing how people react to situations that can make their lives better or worse, depending upon how you view it. Absolutely loved the ending and was sad to have finished so quickly. A fun, unique experience that was enlightening and uplifting and I’d love to read more from Ruth Cherry in the future!
