When We Were Strangers by Pamela Schoenewaldt

When We Were Strangers - Pamela Schoenewaldt

I just couldn't get through this book. The story just felt too neat and tidy, especially when the early conflicts seemed to resolve too conveniently. It all got rather tedious, and I just didn't feel that interested in the story or the characters, so I quit.
