The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope
During World War II, teenager Evelyn Roe is sent to manage the family farm in rural North Carolina, where she finds what she takes to be a badly burned soldier on their property. She rescues him, and it quickly becomes clear he is not a man...and not one of us. The rescued body recovers at an unnatural speed, and just as fast, Evelyn and Adam fall deeply in love. The author reveals the exhilarating, terrifying mystery inherent in all relationships: No matter how deeply we love someone, and no matter how much we will sacrifice for them, we can only know them so well.

I really liked it, and read it slowly to savour it. Quite a different book - hope the author will continue to write.

Magical! Lyrical writing, and a premise which made this book impossible to put down. I read it in 3 days.

Very thought-provoking and unique book. The ending was a bit too ambiguous for my liking (and I actually like ambiguous endings), but all in all it was a good read.
