From the author of the beloved bestseller Garden Spells comes a beautiful, haunting story of old loves and new, and the power of the connections that bind us forever…
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was drawn in by the beautiful cover and it was everything I hoped it would be! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a woodsy, magical, yet emotionally realistic story shrouded in mystery and intrigue, basically a read that looks like the book cover.
I loved the author, Sarah Addison Allen’s writing style and character development. It was thought-provoking and not a bunch of filler. The storyline was well-supported with an interwoven depth of ideas that were built along, but not revealed too soon or too late. It was an emotionally touching, yet refreshing and a satisfying read.
The photo postcards in the book were a nice touch.
I believe it’s a series and I’ll be looking forward to reading the next one.
MY FAVORITE LINES:
“When your cup is empty, you do not mourn what is gone.”
“Selma, if you keep acting like you don’t care, pretty soon everyone is going to believe you.”
