I came into A Cross To Bear without one single idea of what I was getting into - maybe I expected a story about a college guy who meets a girl and tried to balance school, swimming and a relationship. The last thing I expected however was a novel that touched all the subjects you'd never think would be brought up in one single novel: depression, manipulation, doubt, love and so many others that I had to wonder just who Julieanne Lynch managed it. It's not the type of novel that I'll usually gravitate towards, mostly because the subjects discussed hit much too close to home, but I'm so very happy that I took the chance and did.

The problem with describing the 'hotness' factor of this book is that I didn't necessarily find it as important as the whole of the novel - in truth, I didn't pay much attention to it and concentrated mostly on the personalities and habits of the characters. Absolutely I found the relationship between Logan and Bree intriguing, but most of all, the interaction between each different character is what drew me in. Julieanne Lynch's A Cross To Bear was a different type of read that I don't regret picking up and I'd be curious to compare it to her other releases.
