I was first attracted to this book because it is loosely based on the novel Jane Eyre, which I have previously enjoyed. I can see similarities but this book still stands on it's own. I liked how the book was sectioned into the different times and trials of Gemma's flight through her mostly difficult life. I found the ending to be a bit disappointing, there could have been more but the author decided to leave it with many questions unanswered. Overall this was a good book and I would give it 3.5 stars out of a possible 5.
