I found this book quite an interesting and enjoyable read. The characters are quite approachable, human and flawed and nuanced, each of them growing and developing as people do when faced with the adversities of their lives. I found the portrayal of the villain of the story particularly interesting, as the mystery of not just who they are but also why they are doing what they are doing is revealed.
