Another great book with fantastic imagery and a pull-you-in storyline that had me turning the pages until the story had come to an end. I was quite caught off-guard by this book. I was only expecting to enjoy it somewhat and it, but instead it became one of my favourite books! I can hardly wait to read more from Jane Urquhart.

Some of my favourite parts were how the mother and father tied the boy in the shed to keep him from wandering off and the pain of his release as both a blessing and a curse to the entire family. I enjoyed the scenes where the sister made the red coat on the floor and the pattern was forever etched into the wood. Loved how the two storylines of an old day-dreaming priest and the girl collided on unique and yet same levels. I thoroughly enjoyed the reunion of brother and sister and the journey that they take to France.

Trust me, read it and you'll know why it's become one of my faves!
