As other reviewers have said, I had high expectations for this book. And it was a good read, but not worthy of the "wow" that others have rated it. I give it 3 1/2 stars. The story is somewhat predictable. You know from the beginning that abuse will be part of the story because of PTSD. The survivalist twist was unexpected and I was intrigued by that but sadly, it was a thin thread in this story. Then an accident happens and it is a gallop to the end of the story. So much storyline was condensed into a few pages. Having said that, I did like the characters because they were wholly fleshed out. A very readable writing style.
