I cried when I read this book. The first story touched my heart the most. I could really feel for Liz; the one who have everything, and yet nothing at all. I could feel her loneliness, and her struggles to reach out for someone whom she could share her life with.
The other three stories were equally good, but for now, I’m still crying over Liz’s story, and I wished I could have met that handsome stranger who will take away all of the pain in my heart too.
What I really think about this book is that, some of the stories does reflect the real pain of women today. How am I supposed to rate this book? It made me cry alot. I enjoyed reading it, but it made me sad too… so I’m gonna just rate this book a 4 star for the bumpy emotional ride.
I received an ARC of this book from Barbara Freely via Netgalley. i was not required to write a positive review for this book.
