WARNING: Do not read this book while flying on a plane sitting next to a judgy, disapproving man who is giving you no elbow space and who has no Kleenex tissues because:
1) YOU WILL NEED TISSUES
2) YOU WILL NEED SOME SPACE
3) JUDGY, DISAPPROVING PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ON PLANES (or in public)
This book was recommended to me by Jenny the Book Sojourner and now I have to add her to my Festivus card list and send her a thank you bouquet of flowers.
But, this book (I feel) is misclassified as a romance. This is actually literary fiction. Yes, there is a romance in the book. But this book is so much more. It is about families, a community, coming of age, relationships, death, sickness, unfulfilled desire, suspense, acceptance, God and faith.
Needless to say, Amy Harmon is an outstanding writer. She is a story teller, my favorite kind of author. She is also a perfect example of why the independent movement (self-publishing) is the best thing that has happened to publishing since the printing press.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantastic books.
