Sad and lovely. The themes of family, love, obligation and individuality are explored in such a subtly and elegant way. This book is very well written; heartbreaking without being bleak or saccharine .... A rare feat.

Extra fun and creepy! I read this book in just over 24 hours... I never do that. Exactly the kind of book I want to cuddle under blankets and read.

Oh, I just loved this so much! It's magical and historical and human and so, so beautiful. It broke my heart repeatedly.

Just a note... I listened to this as opposed to reading it. It is heartbreaking and touching and tough. It reads almost like fiction but is made all the more poignant when you remember these "characters" are actual people.
