To be fair, I only read this book because it was a free Nook download, and somehow I find them hard to resist. This book is a sappy romance filled with clichés and Christian references. I should have stopped reading when the author claimed that thus Cathloic Italian family had converted to Methodism sorry to burst any bubbles, but that's hardly realistic, especially for a family that's sooooo "Italian". Besides this issue, the book was boring and the writing style was very simplistic. I must confess, I only finished it to add another book to my reading challenge.
