Okay, I am going to insert a disclaimer here LOL: readers looking for steamy, passionate love scenes with a hot heartthrob are going to be disappointed LOL. The story may look quite small, and it is! But interwoven within the narrative of simple words, it does occasionally touch upon some heavy issues.
Readers willing to journey with the protagonist as she grapples with her emotions and the reality of her circumstances will be rewarded with a moving tale.
