I really wanted to like this story. But, it just didn't do it for me. I did make it to the end and, to be honest, I'm not sure how I did. For one, it was kind of boring. Not at all what I was expecting. It did start out promising, but as the story progressed, it fell flat. I found myself waiting for the author to get to the point. I felt like there were too many perspectives and that halted the flow of the book. It was too wordy. I also really disliked the parts that were told from the dog, Tessa's, perspective. I have never liked when things like that are injected into a story. It may work well for some, but not for me.
