My impressions

At first glance, Petra, the main character is very cold hearted and gets her way using others. Was it her past that has shaped her present?

Falling in love seems to put her stoic character vulnerable. Indeed, it did. Petra wants everything according to her whims and fancies but others have their own minds too. That reality hurts. A lot.

Human frailty. However strong you are, matters of the heart almost always steers your plans not along the intended path.

A lot to ponder.
