I liked the story and the main character, Mandy. She had a rough childhood and tried to make a better life for herself as she got older. Growing up Southern Baptist in a small town in the 1950’s didn’t make that easy. I like how she rationalizes things and the author does a great job conveying her emotions. I could feel her joy when she adopted her son and her disappointment when there was trouble in her marriage.
The relationship between her and Kathleen developed naturally and I love that they didn’t just jump into bed together. It ended kind of abruptly though and then you have to buy the next “episode.” I might continue the series.
