I really loved this book. I am a avid reader of historical fiction normally, but the last couple months I have been on a contemporary, cutesy romance kind of kick. So I was unsure when I picked this up how I was going to like it. I found it was a contemporary read, and ever though its kind of a sad book, it has a happy ending which I wasn't expecting, at all. So I was decently surprised. I really loved it though and I would defiantly recommend it.
