I’ve listened to a previous Jesse Keane story and enjoy her style. She creates very real characters within a pacy storyline. This book follows that trend. The central female lead, Ruby, is a strong and empathetic character, who fights to find her place in the world. Events overtake her in her earlier life but she evolves into an assertive woman who controls her own destiny, albeit at personal costs. The story moves along at a good pace, maintaining the listener’s involvement. Karen Cass is to be praised for her role in driving this, with great delineation between characters. Your emotions vary throughout the book, rising and falling with events. I can’t wait to start the next book in this series.
