This book has caught my attention by how believable the characters are. They had to endure real complications such as surviving a war that came between their love affection towards each other. It kept me so interested I wouldn’t want to shut the book. The more and more I read it surprised me by how great it was, and I didn’t realize how time had passed. Although there relationship is chaotic it shows that true love prevails all.
