It's a deep languorous and sultry read. It's harsh and so sad beautiful I had to stop now and then because my heart hurt.
The sentences are one by one beautiful written just as I hoped it would.
The colors....my god....all those colors I saw and felt them.
Outstanding developed story and layered personalities.
This author has a gift to write in a very emotional, deep moving way, with longing and yearning and thank god with a HEA else I couldn't handle it.
Highly recommend for the ones who can handle burned orange, salmon, turquoise, purple and sunglow yellow (forever :)
