There isn't too much I can say without releasing spoilers and it really would spoil it so apologies for the shortness of this review - I hope you'll forgive me.
I enjoyed reading this book from the start. The author introduces all the characters well and brings them to life very easily. I had an almost immediate idea of what they all looked like, how they interacted and their mannerisms.
Our main lead - Magdalena is a young teenager, doing what all teenagers do but a visit to a local fair changes her life forever. Skip ahead a decade or so and she's faced some of the worst things you can imagine in life but she has built herself a happy life despite the losses she has faced. That is until she faces yet another...Her latest loss leaves her understandably shaken and she moves to a new town to start afresh which is where the story takes on a life of its own - a new beginning.
There are a couple of little clues; I missed them, but there is a twist just before the end - that's where my quandry over 4 or 5 stars came in. I found it hard to accept but I know so many people will find it spectacular and it means the story really doesn't end how you'd expect it to which I did like.
Overall, I found this story had me experiencing a full range of emotions. I cried tears of sadness and of joy whilst reading this and I very much look forward to the next book.

What a great story! I loved the characters, I loved the premise of the entire novel. The writing
was good. Imagine as a young girl visiting a fortune teller and she tells your best friend that she will not love long, and tells you that everyone you love will be gone, that you will live your life alone.
Magdalena has lived her life in fear that is true, she's lost many loved ones. But relaxes a little and
then something horrible happens. I felt so sad for her, I could not imagine going through what
she did. How would you survive?
She decides to move back to her grandparents home and fix it up, she slowly begins to live again,
she makes a few new friends, get herself a horse and begins to heal.
This novel was a great surprise, I never expected the ending at all, it was fantastic! If you love family drama, pain, friendship, new beginnings, and a shocking end, you will love this novel.
