Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The characters were well-developed and interesting, and Odessa's struggles were suspenseful. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable novel.
While Odessa has journeyed West for "the cure" to what ails her (Consumption/TB) and is battling to just Breathe, her siblings are fighting their own battles; internal ones with external consequences. These characters are all so well written, that you will not find it hard to care for them, root for them and at times worry over them. They are characters you can relate to, the ones that make mistakes and sometimes get things right. However, with Nic & Moira, I believe we will see more struggles, mistakes and consequences ahead and of course that is the kind of stuff that makes for a good read. I like redemptive stories and I have a feeling this series will not disappoint on that end. And while this is Christian Fiction, it is not overtly in your face nor preachy. I noticed several reviews by non-christians who had in fact enjoyed this book. For a Christian, like myself, it is a good read and one that as I mentioned before, I look forward to seeing more of the growth and redeeming in these characters over the next two books!
