    Very fresh story with a great dose of reality.

    Very fresh story with a great dose of reality. The setting of the Nicaraguan jungles felt so very real, I wasn't at all surprised to learn Amanda Heger had been on a brigade to Nicaragua herself. The descriptions are vivid and so very well written that you really become immersed in the world and culture of the story. This will likely sound odd to say, but I kept finding myself reading with a Latin American/Spanish accent (this was likely helped by the fact that my brother-in-law is from Venezuela). For this reason, I would have preferred the character of Phillip to not be named Phillip since I kept reading it as "Philippe." That's my own fault, of course, haha. :) The sprinkled Spanish throughout the book was generous enough to help bring you into the world, without being too much. I don't know much Spanish, like Annie herself, but I still understood quite a bit of it and literally laughed out loud at this line: “¡Es rojo como una bruja! ¡Una bruja!” Which brings me to the next thing that I liked: the emotions brought up throughout. This story was funny, touching, suspenseful, sad, and sexy. I had gone in expecting more of a romance with a Latin American angle, but was pleasantly surprised to find a story that was focused on Annie and Felipe as people than just as a couple. Most of their relationship is built up in a very natural way, without as many grandiose declarations of "You're The One." As a result of this, it's fairly tame in the steaminess department, but the depth of the bonding otherwise is so enchanting you don't mind. And, rest assured, it's not without some sexiness. Sex itself just isn't the focus. The side characters all added some extra depth and stood on their own without feeling like plot contrivances. Marisol, Phillip and Juan are all great characters. I liked this story and the character development quite a bit. The scene where the woman gives birth - just wonderful. It said so much about the characters and their growth, and made me smile.
