Abby's Journey, the sequel to Saving Abby, chronicles the story of the sacred child that Claire was determined to save, at the greatest cost of all. Abby, born prematurely, suffers from a lung condition that stops her from living a "normal life". Instead, under constant protection from her father, she's often either sick in the hospital, or being watched over by the anxiety-riddled father that once lost the love of his life and refuses to lose his daughter, too.

This story, told from multiple points of view, carries on Claire's legacy and allows the reader to see inside the mind of each character. Through letters written by Claire to her family, the reader is allowed, even further, into the mind and emotions of each of the characters.

Though the stories each have a different tone, they are both filled with adventure. While we get to see Europe through Claire's sad and grieving eyes in the first novel, we get to see it again through the naive and adventurous eyes of Abby as a young adult.

So, as it was Claire's wish to be a mother, it is Abby's wish to know her mother. And there is no love like that of a mother and daughter. Charming and romantic, heartbreaking and exciting, these stories are compelling and exceptionally written. ( )

I am so happy that Steena wrote this book to follow up on the story of Abby from the first book. It answers all of the questions that I had at the end of Saving Abby - how did Josh handle being a single father, what was Abby like and did she know how much her mom loved her? All that and more is addressed in this book. Abby has the journals and letters that Claire left her and her big wish is to travel to some of the places that her mom had traveled to. Her dad is very overprotective due to Abby's health issues but he finally gives in to her desire to go to the Christmas markets in Europe with her grandmother. If you have ever read Steena's facebook page you know that she loves to travel and her love of travel is reflected in this book. I felt like I was in small towns in Germany and Belgium because her writing was so descriptive. This book was fantastic and there are places where you'll probably shed a few tears. It's a beautiful coming of age story about family and love and letting go and most importantly following your dreams. ( )
