This book was slow reading and at times I was just board with it. It was mostly predictable, and I was disappointed in main character's lack of courage to share her innermost struggles with the man she loves.
The book was good overall and kept me entertained, however I was really disappointed with the ending. But we'll get back to that. Although the story was very good in regards to the characters' experiences and it was enlightening (if the author stayed true to how the prison system worked in those days...I wouldn't know), I felt the two main characters didn't interact enough to make them falling in love believable. I loved Hannah's struggle with her decisions though, and I felt the author did an excellent job depicting that. But the ending... I was like "What?! That's it?!" And, not in a good way. But again, maybe that's because I didn't get the feeling that the two main characters had much interaction, and therefore, to me the ending was weak. But check it out for yourself! :)
