Four of five stars given
Gabriella has a vision for herself. She is determined and focussed on that vision. Life has its ways of intervening and interfering, but Gabriella rolls with what’s thrown her way and perseveres. Gabriela’s story is not a new one and while you will at times shake your head at her willfulness, you can’t help but admire the determination that drives her.
Bell has taken a familiar narrative, given it new life, and added a turn that surprised this reader. A good read with engaging characters – I particularly loved Lita and Magda – I’m sure this is a novel you will enjoy!
