I purchased this book by accident on my Kindle and was so upset with myself. I desperately read the synopsis to see what I purchased, and was pleasantly surprised because it was the type of book that I would be interested in. I was even more happy when I started to read it because I found it to be an engrossing story that I thoroughly enjoyed. I especially loved the ending! It appears that this novel may be a stand alone novel, but I would really like to see more stories with Jackson.
