Marianna's indecision was too drawn out!,
It may just be me,because I do not like books of ANGST and full of woe and despair, and I got very weary of Marianna's wavering feelings between Aaron and Ben,and feel the book could have been at least 100 pgs shorter without all that. I also do not enjoy reading about characters who do not know their own mind(or heart) and cannot make a decision.
I prefer characters who know what they want,and make it clear to their intended,because it is nothing but misery to try to 'second guess' another's intentions/feelings.
This book was too much of that for my taste, and I did not enjoy reading it,as I did the first book.I'm not sure if I will read the third in this series.
However,I totally loved "From Dust and Ashes: A Story of Liberation (The Liberator Series, Book 4" by this author,so I definitely plan to read more of her work.
