I am an avid fan of Torey Hayden and honestly didn't think her writing could get any better until I read this.
For some reason the story just struck me. This tale is so enchanting that it moved me to tears in places, something that is a very rare occurence for a book. It is beautifully written and engages you in a heart-warming roller coaster of a plot. This book certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat and is definitely a real page turner. The care and dedication that the author went through in helping this child is only too apparent. Although it does contain difficult issues it is not shocking in any way but is instead very sensitive about it all.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone, whether they are already a Torey Hayden fan or not. This is a very typical book for her but has an edge to it that I felt made it even better. It is warm, funny, heart-wrenching and ultimately leaves you with a sense of satisfaction that Torey Hayden has once again worked her magic and saved another child. An absolute must read- I can't say more than that.
