  "I HAVE ALMOST ALL OF HER BOOKS IN MY COLLECTIONS AND WILL RE READ THEM OVER A PERIOD OF TIME. IN THIS ONE THE SUBJECT IS ONE I HAVE NEVER ENCOUNTERED AND THE ENDING IS REALLY VERY INTERESTING AS I AM INTERESTED IN THE "WHY" OF SOMETHING OR WHAT A PERSON (S) WILL DO. ALL OF OUR LIVES ARE DIFFERENT, YET WE HAVE A COMMON BOND, MAYBE GOOD, MAYBE BAD, BUT IT IS THERE."
