Paradise - Judith McNaught I have to say, when I started this book I was very, very hesitant. I'm not big on massive childhood backstories, and I was really displeased that it was here, so I really didn't start to enjoy the book until they were all grown up, but when they were, hooo boy.This book was wonderful, there were moments that be crying, moments that had me laughing, and moments that me 'squeeing' like a demented fangirl. I'm so glad that I didn't let myself get turned off by the childhood beginning and gave this wonderful book a fair shot. It was wonderful.
