I enjoyed getting to know the three main characters Liz, her grandmother Ella and her great grandmother Gabriella. I was concerned at the beginning of the story that it might be confusing to have both Ella and Gabriella, but the writing was so good that I didn't need to worry about that. I was very impressed with the writing style since this was a debut novel. Each character was well developed and relatable. The pacing was excellent and I often was thinking about the main characters even when I wasn't reading the book. Switching between characters, time and location, didn't prove a problem for the story and I truly loved reading this multi-layered book.
I hope that Ms. Contino has more books waiting and I will be definitely be adding them to my "to-read" list.
I received this book from BookSparks as part of the FRC2015 in exchange for an honest review.
