The story line was interesting enough and it certainly wasn't a difficult read. Just be aware that there's lots of swear words.

Wow -
first experience with this well-seasoned author but I admire her originality with a subject you would never associate with a novel - marble collecting! Well-balanced writing educates you on marbles as well as unraveling the secretive personality of a very reserved character. Perfectly entertaining, reads smoothly.
