“Keep your eyes fixed firmly on heaven. That is where we belong.”

This was quite an odd story about a group of siblings ruled by their father and his strong beliefs.

I felt quite sorry for Castella in this story because all she really wanted was to be a normal girl, and not to be held to all these strange rules by her father. She did make some less than intelligent decisions at times, but I think this was mainly due to her strange upbringing.

The storyline in this was about Castella’s life, and her siblings lives, and the strange way they lived. I found it quite odd the way Castella was supposed to marry her own brother when she was older, and how they were supposed to live a set way, and I really did wonder whether her father was suffering from a mental illness based on the way he treated his family.

The ending to this was quite weird, but wasn’t without some big revelations.

Maayan Great review! The book is romance? Was it incest? Like, she & her brother did anything & ended up together?
