For a first novel, Rebecca Raymer did a great job. I hope to see her put more of herself and the struggles she has endured into her next book. "Light in the Attic" was a good love story and a terrific way to enter the literary world. This novel is a great way to pass a rainy afternoon. Now it is time for Mrs. Raymer to step out of the shadows and show the world what she is really capable of doing. I look forward to her future writings.
