The book in one sentence: Father Daniel Stone has to go through personal hell when his wife cheats on him and his daughter is raped.
Who would you recommend it to: I don’t know… if you’re into drama sort of stuff, I guess.
OK bits: I like the interlude comics. The plot is pretty good too.
Boring bits: Quite long-winded for me. And quite depressing too.
Verdict: I often see her name in many bestsellers list, so I just picked this for curiosity reasons. Not my type of genre, but if the back page synopsis appeals to me, I won’t mind reading her books again.
