I loved this book. The characters are so well drawn that you feel you know them.
Worthy of a second even third read.

I had the feeling that the idea of the story was beyond the writer's powers to develop. Many of the possibilities were never examined and the depth of the characterization was too shallow to get to the emotional core. It might have been written as a straightforward dramatic action piece but it promised more. Exciting scenes are relatively easy; understanding and insight into complex characters requires a rare talent to get across convincingly. We ought to have deeply reviewed Ben and Inga's relationship and their mental turmoil, with pointers as to how and why their lives developed as they did.
The Jean/Inga tale telling was a good idea and would have worked if both had been more clearly individual, and most of Ben's actions, especially later on were inconsistent. Overall, the writing lacked freshness and a decent editor would have snipped out oft-repeated phrases and recurring identical reactions to a variety of events.
I suspect a more down-to-earth, closer-to-home tale might serve the writer better because there seems to be potential for something a little less ambitious.

The haunting tale of Jean, a young pregnant widow who is kidnapped by Ben, a suspected murderer, and the bond that forms between them. A real page-turner, I read it in one sitting, and the story will stay with me for a long time. A must-read, in my view.
