"From beginning to end, Stephens strings words together like a true artist, allowing him to paint not only striking scenery, but also authentic emotions. . . . The plot isn't particularly fast-paced or action-fueled; rather, it's unhurried, thoughtful, and emotional. . . .Without being too heavy-handed, this story is replete with worthy lessons, such as the importance of treasuring relationships over riches, the powerful impact of true and patient friendship, and the value of pursuing your passions. The strong scenes and messages in this book will likely linger with readers long after they have put it down.
