Its originality in many areas and terrific insight and an emotionally substantial (and genuinely clever) premise. I’ve read a few books from Dr. Ruth Cherry now, and she is a talented author whose creative vision breaks new ground but follows comfortingly familiar elements for the genre, and even invented some new ones. This is a story that kept me glued to the pages for hours, lost within an interesting world with characters that fascinated me to no end. Love that last line though “Just open my heart and surrender to life”. Perfect! A riveting journey that entertained and taught me some things, and I will gladly read more from Ruth Cherry anytime. Recommend.
