I won a free copy of this book through the Goodreads giveaways. I am so thankful that I was able to win this book. I don't throw around the term "favorite" too often, but this book has become one of my favorites. I was enthralled with the book from the first pages describing Cathy struggling with the difficult birth of her seventh daughter, June. The story perfectly blended death and sorrow, with growth, love, mysticism, and comedy. I loved each sister's unique personality. I loved learning about the Scottish language and culture, as well as following the growth of each sister. From the beginning you get the sense that there is an underlying mystery and sadness following Cathy. As the story unravels, you learn of her past and her deep connection with her daughter June. This book brought out so many different emotions. June's unique abilities cause her to have such a struggle and need for acceptance in her religious family.I felt so emotionally attached to her. It was a truly fascinating and wonderful read. I highly recommend this book!
