Taken is a tribute to women whose lives have been taken by war. In the end, out of the wreckage of grief, pain and power, love and light—however changed—endure.

Very poetically written with a somewhat ethereal feel. But it was difficult to emotionally connect to both the story and the characters. I'm glad I read it but I would have difficulty recommending it.
