it was amazing

A beautifully-written, intricate story of a...story whose thread survives generations and winds up in the hands of a young girl who cares enough to trace it to its origins and, in the process, saves more than one life from despair. Read the Amazon summary--I won't reproduce it here--but suffice it to say that I wept when I read the ending. Then I read the ending a second, and a third time, and wept just as profoundly each time. Maybe I'll read it again tonight, if I happen to feel like crying.

A truly intricately-conceived and masterfully-told tale.
