3.5 stars!

Overall, this was an enjoyable read. Even though I had a pretty good idea of what would happen, the story still gripped me from beginning to end. Besides a few slow moments here and there, the pacing was done well, and I loved seeing Margaret's strength and willpower as she experienced highs and lows. Katherine Center also sprinkled in a lot of great little nuggets of morals and "life lessons" throughout the story that really fit in with the theme and wasn't too overt or in-your-face.

My favorite part of this book was the relationship between Margaret and her sister, Kit - their banter, arguments, and unconditional love for each other felt very real. The romance in this novel was sweet as well, and I really liked how it had room to progress naturally without taking away from the main plot of Margaret's recovery. I am a little conflicted on how I feel about Ian though - although we got a sad backstory for him, I'm not sure how much of a character would be left if we took away his Scottishness.

I really liked the ending; it seemed pretty realistic to me (in romcom standards anyway). I'm not sure how I felt about the tell-not-show nature of the Epilogue, but that's probably just me being picky.
