Did I finish this one quick or what? (Really, I started reading it one day, and sped through it in a few hours the next couple)

It was interesting to have the setting be a little more "In the past" as opposed to the modern era with cell phones, cars everywhere etc.

Maggie was such an interesting character, I really felt for her and all the struggles she was going through. I thought she might be considering leaving when she started going to the meetings, but it didn't turn out that way at all. She also didn't end up with who I'd thought at first, which was a nice surprise. It was a little heartbreaking to see them all struggling with loosing their mother and accepting Rachel, even if Rachel herself was trying hard to not show how hurt she was by the situation.
