This book is beautifully written and I loved reading the first third. Once the plot thickened near the middle I couldn't continue though. Let me be clear - the insta-attraction and sex itself didn't bother me. I totally understood the need for physical contact after existing on a purely spiritual plane for so long. But seeing all the problems coming from so far away put me off. Also, I grew up in a small town where one of my best friends was in a similar situation to Jenny... I saw what happened to her family; I don't want to read about it again, thank you.I'm sure that many people will love this book but it wasn't for me.
