Reviewed by Molly Edwards for Readers' Favorite

A truly wonderful and well written novel! I am highly pleased to say that I really enjoyed this book. Chloe Jon Paul chose a setting and a plot that is superbly detailed and well written, threw in some really great characters and turned out a book that will capture the heart of the reader instantly.

I loved following Vera, Dee, Mark and Stu through out this story. A rather mixed up bunch, if I may say so, but the detail that the author put behind them was phenomenal.

These four characters aren't your normal ones by any means. Vera is a teacher, ready for retirement but can't help venting her frustration during a school board meeting. Dee, well, she's simply Dee. She's a dedicated teacher, holds a secret that no one else knows. Then there's Mark. I loved him and I hated him....his character was created fabulously but his personal life issues and his way of dealing with them just wasn't what I wanted them to be! Mark's attraction to Dee is strong, but he's a married man. Last, there's Stu--he's different, and only one other person knows why he's so different. But, tragedy strikes Stu and no one knows the cause.

This book is filled with a bit of mystery, LOTS of dramatic situations and plenty of good reading. I highly recommend it to everyone looking for a new author and a good read.
