In all my years of readership, I've never read a more bland book than this. I don't recommend this book to anyone. An open-ended book with no definite ending. This was supposed to be a romantic story, but turned out to be full of sadness and uncertainty in the closing chapter. Its only saving grace is the quote at the beginning of every chapter.
