I found the story fascinating and the character development completely absorbing. I can’t imagine how hard it would be living with such debilitating shyness, although the author did an excellent job putting me in Mark’s head. Mark stepped up to the plate when needed by his family no matter how hard it was for him. It was nice to see him finally take a small step forward for himself when he reached out to Seth. Seth was so understanding and went out of his way to try to make Mark more comfortable. These two made a wonderful couple, and I would love to see more of them. Fortunately, the author just posted a lovely snippet about them for Valentine’s Day here.
