The Last Camellia

The Last Camellia - Sarah Jio I am getting very tired of the 'split screen' writing genre with the plot divided down the middle into 2 halves. Effectively this makes this novel really 2 150 page novellas with each half just propelling each other along to fulfill the plot and deprive it of any motivation at all.
Sarah needs to break free of the botantical rut she is it.
The next book is "Morning Glory" - there are more important things in life to write about instead of rummaging in the botanic gardens for inspiration.
