Found this funny in some parts, heartbreaking to learn about what they have both been through and happy that everything fell into place. Emma is adorable. Ash and his antics can be tiresome in one or two instances but he is a lovable bloke, considering everything that he went though. The new friends are those who will be in the next books of this series, I reckon.
It would have been good if Emma and her father found a way to patch the big issue that caused an ocean of gap between the two of them.
