I actually teared up reading the authors notes at the back of the book. I just can't believe it's over. I don't think I could ever be ready to say goodbye to my beloved Winston family so I guess it's lucky I can do a reread at any time. Although probably not too soon since this one was the hardest to read.

I found myself needing little breaks between some of the chapters to get my head around the injustices that Billy and Scarlet had to go through. Every single time something that had stood in their way was overcome there seemed to be another obstacle. And I think the hardest part was realising how many of them were created by Billy trying to protect Scarlet. 

I admit I was as frustrated with Billy as much as I adored him. The depth of his love for Scarlet was beautiful but he took martyr to a whole new level. And my evil little soul wasn't really happy that they didn't get a whole load of revenge on a few people. But I guess like the saying, the best revenge is a life well lived and I did love that everything came full circle and the epilogue was perfect. 

I just can't believe it's over. However I am eternally grateful that this story involved the entire family and we got to spend this last book with all of them.
