This was my first time reading an Eva Marie Everson novel, and I know it won't be my last. I absolutely adored this book! At 453 pages, this isn't a short book. However, the story was so good, I just zipped right through the pages. I'd love to read more about Betty, Joan, Evelyn, Inga, and Magda! Please write another book! I was surprised to learn at the end that one of the characters is actually a real person: http://5brides1dress.com/?p=312! So awesome! I truly loved this book!
