I had never read any of Jo’s books before but I wasn’t afraid of reading this one first as it is a stand alone novel. Though now I want to read the rest. This was a very intense and gripping story, which was sometimes dramatic. The characters were written in a way that you feel like you know them. This is definitely an author I am going to love and read more of her books.
