what a great read. i really, really enjoyed this. it's broken into past and present, and each chapter goes back and forth between them. at the end of every chapter, when the new chapter would start, and it would be the other story again, i felt 'no! i need to know what happens in the other story right now!!' and then the same thing would happen at the end of that chapter. for the entire book. if i could have read it in one sitting i would have.
