My Thoughts on the Book
This is another beautifully
written book by Suzanne Palmieri. She does a wonderful job of unfolding
the story is such a way that you are surprised and touched all at the
same time. Many times during the story we are just as confused by what
is going on as Wyn is but in a way that makes of feel for Wyn's guilt
for being away for so long. All of the characters have pasts that they
need to come to terms with, some more then others and who to trust and
who to love is all part of the mystery. This is a stand alone novel but
weaves people and history from The Witch of Little Italy which makes
this book that much more charming.
