Not only is the book a romance and an adventurous tale, but Fischel uses the power of his words to draw attention to issues that are commonly ignored, such as human trafficking and the existence of mafias. Through this book, I gained a new perspective on these issues due to his relatable characters that put a mental image on the issue. This book was truly a treasure to read, and I give it my highest recommendation. Reviewed By Julia Schemmer for Readers’ Favorite
The underlying message here is that it isn’t too late to find true love and happiness, and Mr Fischel has demonstrated that perfectly in this novel. The storyline itself was well thought out and written in such a way that I read it in one sitting. A good book and well worth the time it took to read it.
