My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I started reading this book because it showed up on the Goodreads list of a lot of my followers. I was excited because I have never read anything from J. California Cooper before. I’m always eager to try out new authors.
I didn’t really care for this book a lot. It was depressing and for a collection of short stories, it took too long for me to finish. The style of writing was a bit too preachy for my tastes. As a Christian, even I don’t like to get beat upside the head with religion. HOWEVER, I would buy this book for younger girls….mostly teenagers. I think the issue for me was that these were lessons I’ve already learned through trial and error….or by watching the mistakes of others. For a young person, this could make a difference. Good book, just not for me.
