A baby abduction and the effect it has on everyone over the years, if I had to summarize in one sentence. I enjoyed the characters and the setting. I was sad to read all of the suffering, but the ending was good. I only have one problem with Raven, the main character. For her to be a very smart 16-year old, she really acted very much like a child when it came to believing what she was told. She was in school and not sheltered any longer at this point, so she should have had a clue. Otherwise, I enjoyed the book.… (més)

A quick read. Characters you cared about.

She throws herself into her work from dusk to dawn, until her solitary routine is disrupted by the appearance of a mysterious child who shows up at her cabin barefoot and covered in bruises.The girl calls herself Ursa, and she claims to have been sent from the stars to witness five miracles. With concerns about the child?s home situation, Jo reluctantly agrees to let her stayjust until she learns more about Ursa?s past.Jo enlists the help of her reclusive neighbor, Gabriel Nash, to solve the mystery of the charming child. But the more time they spend together, the more questions they have. How does a young girl not only read but understand Shakespeare? Why do good things keep happening in her presence? And why aren?t Jo and Gabe checking the missing children?s website anymore?Though the three have formed an incredible bond, they know difficult choices must be made. As the summer nears an end and Ursa gets closer to her fifth miracle, her dangerous past closes in.

I can’t remember the last time I read a book so good it made me put everything else aside so I could just finish the story. This was just that good. I quickly got invested in Jo’s, Ursa’s, and Gabe’s tale and couldn’t wait to find out how everything turned out. All three of them were wounded, for differing reasons, and together, they brought healing to one another. I also loved Ursa’s quick intelligence, her vivid imagination, and the joy she brought to every little thing. Her spark (I loved that she called them “quarks”) was contagious enough to light Gabe’s way out of his suffering, as well as Jo’s road to Gabe.

I can certainly see why Forest is classified as Women’s Fiction; with Jo as the main character and Ursa the main focus, and both of them being exceptionally strong females in harsh circumstances, the story is sometimes suspenseful, sometimes heartbreaking, but hopeful throughout. It’s a real “feel-good” book that warmed me to my core.

There’s nothing not to love about this story. Very highly recommended.

I read this for my aunt’s book club because I love her deeply, but holy shit, this was truly terrible. This novel is somehow a Hallmark movie in print masquerading as a deep exploration of trauma. Gag. Horrible dialogue, unrealistic plot movement, one-dimensional characters… Some jaw-dropping moments when these three strikes come together.

Anyway, while the characters were cute the rest of it just reeked as easy airplane lit. I’m especially ticked off that the publisher is Amazon Inc. associated so they keep all of their e-copies and audiobooks off library services like Libby and instead hold a monopoly for those formats on Audible and the Kindle store. Just horrific levels of trash everywhere I turn. I’m so petty and jealous this author has doubtless made some fat coin.… (més)
