Compelling Story

Spears does a great job pulling the reader into a country we are not familiar with to experience a story that delivers the concepts of business pressures, unusual politics and human greed. The characters are well developed so that you really feel the pain and victory of the lead character as she moves through her ordeal. Love, anger, hate, family values are all emotions shared with the real people you get to know.
