The Secret Between Us is very much a character-driven book, which in some regard I think ties the reader’s liking of the book to his or her liking (or not) of the main character(s). For example, as I was reading the book, my opinion swung from liking very much to only just liking it as Deborah’s story arc developed. The way she interacted with other characters changed how I thought of her, and in turn, the book.
How do you feel about the characters in the book? Did your liking or not liking them influence your opinion of the book overall?
