My rating: 4 of 5 stars
How do I write this review? I need to be honest here but also feel the need to explain. I really enjoyed this book, I did. But you need to have a thick skin to read it, it is not for everyone. It’s brutal, hard, sharp-edged with a little bit of tender and sweet thrown in for good measure. I love books like that – but even I cringed a few times, squirmed because parts of it made me uncomfortable. I don’t let that take away from the beautiful tapestry that was eventually weaved within the pages of this story. This was a hard fought battle and Roman, Luke and this reader all eventually won.
