Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak and Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell made an impact on Georgia’s life as a young reader.
I love this book. I was completely engrossed, I couldn’t put it down. This legal thriller will have you hooked until the case is closed. The plot has it all, betrayal, manipulation, passion, plus riveting courtroom scenes and an ending that is astonishing. A truly remarkable and exquisite page-turner.
