WOW! On so many levels! Beautifully crafted. A gifted novelist. I didn't want the book to end. Amazing for a 1st novel!

Beautiful. I didn't love the first 40 pages or so; but I went on, and was rewarded with gorgeous writing. It is a nice reminder of how one's scars can sometimes match up and heal nicely next to another's...
