I received this as a goodreads giveaway.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was a good balance between prose and dialogue and I found myself unable to put it down, finishing it in two work days. I enjoyed the pace of the story, which was set and helped along by a forest fire threatening to take down the O'Leary Ranch. I know nothing of forest fires, and the descriptions of what was happening were vivid enough to make me believe I was seeing it.

I also enjoyed the back story of Molly and her father and their struggles with mental illness. Of course a disasterous event would trigger symptoms, and it was interesting to see how this played out.

Overall an intersting book. Different from anything else I've read. Full of rich characters and a moving storyline. I recommend it!
