Summary / Annotation
I finished it... submitted by bookher on July 7, 2019, 10:25am This book had so much potential in the beginning. Though, it never seemed like the characters ever really developped to their full potential. I liked Tom Hope a lot but I wish the author had gone into his family more. Hannah's character was the most complete character in the story but even with her it was never explained why she did what she did. If you are able to endure nazi germany war flash-backs and horrendous child abuse than by all means push through to the end. The ending, though satisfying, seemed rushed. This is not a book I really needed to read.
