What to say about this one - it was sweet, it was nice, it was sweet, um, it was sweet?
If I had to use one word, I would use tepid. Nice heroine, nicer husband-in-name-only who stays alive too long, nice Hero, great kids, everyone is just so freaking NICE!
Angsty? Not really.
Sad? Kind of.
Wasted potential for a major tear-jerker? Yup.
It read to me like a watered-down version of The Fulfillment. Boy, there was some angst. A much better read, btw, if you're looking for brothers, babies and death.
