About the Book
Upon her return from her best friend Charlie’s wedding, Victoria found that the beautiful city of Chicago had never seemed emptier and neither had her soul. She realized she was surrounded by all the people in the world and she still felt lonely. Deciding to take her friend Charlie’s advice and make a change in her life, she packed her bags and moved to the west coast of Florida. Little did she know that the young Amish girl that she met on the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico would begin a spiral of emotional changes for both of them.
My Two Cents
I must say that I love the way Pamela wrote Victoria and her personal journey throughout this book. I do however, feel that for me personally, the story was a bit slow at times. That being said, I cannot say enough about how great the writing of Victoria’s character was. Pamela Jo did a wonderful job making her feel real. She reacted like how I would expect someone with her thought process to react. I love it when authors make realistic characters.
I give this book a four out of five stars. Again, I love the character development in this story!
Thank you to Pamela Jo and CelebrateLit for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
