Purly Gates - Vastine Bondurant This book was very interesting, from its original, wickedly ingenious title over the lyrical writing and beautiful prose to the well-drawn characters. Considering how short it is, the story created an impressive amount of atmosphere. However, the plot in itself was just the same old insta-love and the ending....sorry Sims...that was just over the top. Sweet, admittedly, and the good kind, not the toothache kind, but still.
