The stories of each of the three women are elaborated upon in every chapter, and the style makes this an easy read even though the content can be quite heavy. As one reads the stories of Rina, Mimi and Chani, a feeling of friendship forms between the reader and these women. I couldn’t wait to find out at the end of the book how each of them resolved their situations. And after reading the decisions that each one made, and their explanations behind those decisions, there was much to contemplate.
It might seem like an odd thing to say about a book of this kind, but I couldn’t put the book down until I finished reading it.
