Kirja-arvosteluja

This novel was compelling and kept me engaged, but as seems to be typical of author Robert Goolrick's works, had sadness and definitely not an happily ever after ending.

Wisconsin bachelor advertises for a wife. From there it is a story of eroticism, despair, love and loss. Ended up being a very well written story that was very compelling.

It was just a story about despair.

I loved the plot of this book but overall it felt too plodding and slow for me. For every lovely line or thought there were paragraphs of things that bored me and seemed repetitive.

I think this is really a 2.5 but I will round up.

Pure poetry of despair and redemption
