I received a copy through netgalley. Before I was even finished this book I was recommending it to others. It is just an amazing story based in new Orleans in the 60's. I felt like I was there, that is how the book draws you in. The author uses the accents in the writing and you can hear the southern Language and accent through out the whole book. I also loved the characters, they are so strong and tough. There are a lot of twists and turns that keep you in the story. I loved this book as a whole and if your even looking at it just pick it up and read the first couple chapters. You won't want to put it down again.
