And all round the room, people were nodding. People who she’d always thought, somehow, wanted to get away, dreaming of freedom. That wasn’t true, she realized. This place: it was freedom. Home and freedom, all at once.
This is well-written with a great sense of place and people. Good emphasis on character development, or an uncovering of true characters. However, I didn’t believe in the romance. Two such different lifestyles and careers, not to mention the long-distance aspect. I see it is the first of a trilogy, so I see lots of stormy waters ahead. And although I liked the characters and wish them well, I just don’t think I want to spend more time with them.
