BAD Do you love fly fishing This book has a beautiful backdrop of the outdoors and flyfishing and rivers You can almost feel that part of it On the other hand, do you like characters who change at the drop of a hat or the turn of a page I didn t either but for the sake of plot twists, people who are characterized as good friends for years become complete schmucks and worse when nothing else is happening.One can understand, for example, how a young woman might be flighty and prone to mood changes However, the transition from whiny spoiled brat to manipulative witch in the period of a day was a bit of a stretch When the character of the angel appeared, I just wanted to see how all the characters would come out in the wash I kept asking myself why the early story of Ben being a school superintendent was even necessary Ultimately I didn t believe that the whole whirlwind wasn t a kind of soap opera It was dramatic, but not believable Still this was an excellent escapist read that kept me turning the pages It kind of makes me sad to think that Ben wouldn t have become that sterling progressive superintendent of schools that he seemed to be, but everything turns out fine.
