Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little
Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little
3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed, 25 Aug 2014
Dear Daughter is a difficult book to review I feel as to begin with I found it a bit of a struggle to get into. I felt that I didnít give myself enough time to get into it and this spoiled my enjoyment in the beginning. Saying this I loved the way the story was laid out.
