like finding ourselves in a sweet shop as the storyines move swiftly from one Crazy Love locale to another all beautifully rendered It is so evident that the author is a travel editor as she pinpoints with real dexterity the different feel of the chosenocations from the deep red earth of Uluru in Australia to war torn Serbia and the exoticism of Thailand As the characters move around each place essentially has at Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society least one chapter devoted to it and it is clear the author is really familiar with her choice of destination and has clearly done aot of research For me the book had a feel of a set of short stories with a couple of eitmotivs winding their way through to unify them skimming the surface there are times when the reader gets ost in the current story it can feel a ittle disruptive when it is time to move on to another character in another time and setting And if there was one small weakness it would be the coincidences of encounters between the characters in order to keep the story moving that felt a ittle contrivedThe Boxing Day Tsunami comes to horrific Black Heart, Red Ruby life and underpins the narrative of familyoss and hope The author also ventures into Serbia at the time of war and to an animal rescue centre Buchanan certainly does not shy away from tackling difficult themes An electric and consuming romance develops and at the heart of the story is a book full of mementoes that one over gives to another and that is the Atlas of Us their joint experiences and journeys both actual and emotionalThis is one of the hot Summer reads of 2014 and a wonderful way to travel the world And I can t finish without mentioning the terrific and exotic book cover which is sure to entice the reader to purchase
