I really, really like Will! He gave up a good job and a good life to take in his nephew after his sister died. He was such a strong Christian with great morals and deserved to find a woman that could marry him and have a dozen children with him! I admired him for the way he stood up to his brother and sister-in-law, and I'm happy with the results of the talk he had with his brother.
Catherine...Well, she was living in some weird dream world. I really liked her most of the time, and I liked how nicely she treated Will and his nephew. But I think she was a very selfish person. It seemed she was always focusing on herself through most of the book - until Will got really, really mad at her for something that wasn't even her fault...She straightened up a bit after that.
Frankly, I did not understand her reasoning for not taking the case. I know what she went through was rough, but she was good at it and shouldn't give it up. If she truly loved Will and his nephew, she wouldn't have hesitated to help. I was just very, very bothered with her whole anti-lawyer attitude just because she mess up one time! I saw this very, very selfish on her part.
Still, the book was very interesting and kept me wanting to read, so it deserves four stars. I took away a star because of Catherine and her attitude.
