"This book is beautiful, both in its exquisite language and the depth of the message carried by those words. The romance builds slowly to form relationships of real substance, and the author’s words of warning are conveyed in such a way as to make her reader fall in love with nearly every one of them....This narrative’s message of hope, acceptance and courage during the worst of times will entrance the reader with its artistic flair, complexity and delivery of raw emotion."   — InD'Tale Magazine
