Let me start by saying that I am a sucker for a great cover and this is a fabulous cover. It is just beautiful and I love the simplicity and elegance of it. I love everything about it really and it is what drew me in to read the first impression to begin with.
I also loved the first impression that I read of this book and was really looking forward to enjoying the full story. Unfortunately, it just didn't engage me. I restarted the book on four different occasions and never managed to finish it. I'm not sure what the reason for this is, but I would put it down and forget about it, then remember that I still 'needed' to finish it.
I hate to leave a negative review for a book that I did not finish, but I have had this book for months and not been able to get through it. I plan to try again in the future, maybe when I'm more in the mood for this type of story, but for now I'm putting it aside as a book that just didn't work for me.
