I saw this book on a table at the book store. After reading the summary, decided I would download the book on my Kindle. At first, I thought I had made a mistake and that it wasn't my type of reading .... as I read further, it captured my interest and I thoroughly like it now. Am about halfway through and have trouble putting it down! The story is very interesting, informative because as it mentions different places, I tend to look them up so I feel it's broadening my horizons. Enjoying the story, like the way it is written and would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who likes a story which will make one curious about other places in the world. Also bought another book from this author, The Paris Wife, which I haven't started yet. Never developed the ability of reading two books at the same time as some people can do.
