Light and Fun, Sally Crosair's novel, Come Back, will have readers captivated by her characters.
The characters are real and very well developed, they make it easy for you as the reader to be drawn into.
This novel was very easy to follow. There was something wonderful about how simple it was. I didn't have to overthink things. There was plenty of comic relief in it to lighten any of the deeper moments.
I never felt confused and that is a great testament when you are introducing readers to new characters and issues.
