I can't even tell you how much I loved this book...made even more special because it will forever be the book that I read the day my mom died. And I think that was "meant to be". The way death (not the person) is treated in the book is so reverential and gave me a great perspective...like this passage:
"Tell me what it is like to die."
He dismounted from his horse, looking at me strangely the whole while, "You experience something similar every day, " he said softly. "It is as familiar to you as bread and butter."
"Yes," I said. "It is like every night when I fall asleep."
"No. It is like every morning when you wake up."
The whole book was beautiful and even poetic at moments.
I think Keturah might be my favorite heroine ever. She was an amazing combination of humor, intelligence, bravery, compassion, charity and beauty.
And what would it be like to see Death in love? You'll have to read to find out.
