Everything I hoped for! This is the lush, atmospheric, slow-burn romance, myth retelling of your dreams! I am sad for everyone waiting til 2021 but I did beg to read this many times for the last 5 years before I finally got to, so I can absolutely assure anyone that it is worth the wait.

This story explores the depths of love, grief, forgiveness and hope while exploring a spirit world as vivid as our own. I can't wait to have a copy on my shelf!
