Kate Lloyd's writing is also exceptional. No clichés but super creative writing. Thanks for another great book, Kate!
Karen Anna Vogel, author of Amish Knitting Circle series.
A fascinating journey which takes the reader through a series of events that bring both happiness and sadness, of discovering truths you may not want to hear, but you must to get to the source of your inner self.
A mother and a daughter have to get to know each other for the first time when they go to an old community, and discover a family that is both hostile and loving.
I enjoyed the character development, of the sadness at the end, but also of the joy that surfaces. The road to discovery is well mapped out, but you cannot use shortcuts to the growth of the characters. They develop at a pace determined by the narrative.
A worthy and highly recommended reading.
