Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Was Good I had very high expectations for this book because April Lindner's last book Jane I loved and I have waited a very long three years for this one,Were my expectations met? unfortunatley no they were not, not to say that this book was bad because it was still great but just not as good as I was hoping. I really liked that the book was written that both Chealsy ( daughter ) got a story and Catherine ( her mother ) got a story. This book is a modern retelling of withering Heights and I have to admit that I have not read the originally but I would maybe like to one day. This book had a really good story and I liked the characters as well but there was just something missing. Overall this was a really good book but I was hoping for more because I loved Jane. :0)
