3 & 1/2 stars.

I really, really wanted to love this book and give it 5 stars, because it's so hard for me to find good Christian fantasy fiction, but I guess I came in with too high expectations. The premise is great and there is such a charm about Goldstone Wood, but ... I don't know, so much potential that didn't quite come together in the end. I didn't dislike Una, but she wasn't the easiest character to root for. I also wasn't expecting the allegory aspect to be so ... allegorical. It was good, but again, I guess I was sort of caught by surprise (just like the ending). I'll be keeping an eye out for her next two novels though.
