I received this book for free through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers.
I can see why many people abandoned this book. The beginning is quite aimless and boring. For me, it wasn't until Elsie went to Sri Lanka for the second time that it got interesting.
I don't quite know what to make of this book. I kind of see what it was trying to achieve but it lacked a clear direction.
Overall, this wasn't completely horrible but it still wasn't a worthwhile read.
