There are very few books that last past the first 10 minutes in bed, at night, before I fall asleep. For several evenings I dashed home from work, threw some food together for the family and on one occasion sat up until 2pm to finish the book. I felt the characters were particularly well developed and I cared about them - even to the extent of having a debate with myself about the troubled sister and how I would have dealt with her ! Really looking forward to the publication of the new book - Freya's Child, and will be at the front of the queue to buy. It's great to find such a talented author.
