As I began this book I really felt a deja vu that reminded strongly of A Certain Slant of Light. This was a bit disconcerting since I disliked the books so much I couldn't finish it. However, given a bit of time the book takes on its own life. I quickly grew to love Joshua. He is just such a doll and completely and utterly impossible. Could a person like him really exist in such circumstances as these? Well, it was done so well that I fervently believed in it. Although, sometimes I felt he should have shown a bit more backbone when it came to threats against Amelia. This might be more a my projection of other things I would liked added to his character. All in it was a really sweet story, that even being sad it leaves you with a sense of hope for the future. But even with that hope there exists a more prevalent knowledge that even if the future works out bad right now is all that matters. Such a sweet message, cherish what you have now.
