“Inspired by the real-life kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart, the author of the Christy Award–winning Into the Free and Carol Award winner When Mountains Move has written an excruciatingly dark and disturbing novel about the devastating impact of sex trafficking on two families. Although Cantrell inserts a grain of hope in the novel, her portrait of loss and heartbreak will leave readers reeling. This latest work is bound to be nominated for all the major CF literary awards.” Starred review (Library Journal)
4 1/2 stars. 'Deeply emotional, moving and full of amazing imagery, Cantrell’s latest is a triumph. Although some of the pain on the pages is incredibly difficult to read, this novel is stunning in its ability to convey the different meanings of slavery and being trapped in untenable circumstances. The ending is healing; this is a book to be savored and pondered.' (RT Book Reviews)

The story is well written and the characters come alive. So much so, that I was an emotional mess throughout. Such difficult topics to cover, yet more important than most people realize. As tough as it was to read about Sarah and Ellie I pray that others will be made aware of how this secret world affects so many.
It was interesting the way the author told the tale from two different points of view. Amanda, Ellie's mother and chaperone for the field trip, and Sarah, Ellie's best friend.
Julie Cantrell does an excellent job of weaving a heart wrenching story with believable characters. There is so much pain, loss, and devastation yet in with the mix is healing and forgiveness.
I highly recommend The Feathered Bone to everyone. It is not your typical feel-good story, but nonetheless, an extremely important read. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy. You will need them.
There will be some tears, and I can pretty much guarantee that you'll be thinking about these characters for days. For me personally, I was most challenged by Sarah. How would I handle such circumstances? Would I hold strongly to my faith, or give up?
I appreciated the way that the author was able to convey the awfulness of the situations without getting into unnecessarily graphic details
