I loved this book and really enjoyed the author's style of writing and what she included and what was left out. The pain of Rachel, with this shroud of self-doubt, self-criticism, self-loathing - putting up a front and living with this self deprecation was just horrible to experience and i related to that in a personal way. She was so frail. Pari turned into this earth-mother of love and understanding, along with her family, and I enjoyed Pari as a realized, beautiful, strong person..

This is the first time in a long while that I had a "whoops, it's 3:00am" moment as I read a book. I have been paying for my lack of sleep all day today but it was so worth it.

Were there elements or events I would have changed a little? Maybe. But I very much enjoyed this 'as is.'
