Nice review, Melissa. Can't wait to read it.

I think this is Anita Stansfield's 55th published book. Anita and I started writing at the same time, and I just dropped off my second manuscript. DN won't allow all caps here, Anita, but may I just say...AmAzInG work. I know what it takes, and you've got it. Congratulations to you, and many thanks to your family for sharing you with the rest of us.

I've read the first two volumes and I'm not sure I want to read volumes 3 and 4. Anita has eliminated dialogue to a large degree in her books. She gets caught up in how people feel until it becomes very tiring to read. I've read over twenty of her books and the last five or six have become difficult to read. I doubt that I will read any more of her books. I did enjoy the earlier novels however.
