This book has a suspenseful plot that makes it hard to put down. It is also written with beautiful language that captures the natural setting in which the book takes place. It is a compelling book that raises issues about justice, prejudice, resilience, family trauma, abandonment, and loneliness. I especially connected with the part when a character who is deeply rooted in the natural world is ripped from that life-giving environment and incarcerated in a concrete cell. For those who love nature and are seeking a story of resilience and courage, this book will keep you thinking and turning the pages.
