Yellow Crocus

Yellow Crocus - Laila Ibrahim, Bahni Turpin I think I'd likely give it 3.5 stars if it hadn't been for the narrator. She did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life.

I was engaged throughout most of the book but there were some scenes that seemed to be a bit heavy on details that did nothing to enhance the story or move it forward. There were also plenty of parts where I had wished more time had been spent giving us some of the feelings of the characters - some very important things that were just glossed over and not really brought up again.

But I still enjoyed the overall package a lot so that's why I went with four stars instead of three and a half.
