I loved and hated this book at the same time. It frustrated me in the beginning and I almost put it down but I became so caught up in the story that I couldn't let it go. I'm glad I kept reading because it was a good story, even though it repeatedly broke my heart. ( )

This is a fable for the 21st century, and Gundar-Goshen a writer whose dexterity proclaims her one to watch.
