I loved this book. I was hooked by page 20 and crying by page 60. I do not cry over books. I have cried only a few (3) time because of books. Jodi McIsaac got me emotional involved in this book from the first page. I related to Cedar. She is this wonderful mother doing the best she can for her daughter. The rest of the story has wowed me. I was moved to tears of fear, sadness, and happiness almost right after another. Wonderful book to read! I am off to read The Thin Veil #2.
