Personal Opinion - One of the best Tracy Higley books I have read and I have enjoyed each book of hers. Taking place in modern times, this book looked at facing the past, finding truth, and loving others over ones self. Using ancient mythology and fairy tales through metaphors, the story captured the unrealness to the protagonist's point of view while also combining two stories of the ancient along with the present and their affects on each other. The twist to the story was excellent by leading up to it, almost suggesting it, but keeping the reader surprised. There was even a small discussion an differences in religion, which I usually dislike because they make the non-Christians like idiots, but this one was respectful to the different points of view even if they didn't agree with each other. There were a couple of times if felt the characters change their thought processes that seemed a little quick and the love story was highly emphasized. Not that romance is a bad thing but it got a little mushy-gooshy for my taste. Loved the strong female taking the lead, though. This book is a must read for those who like mystery, ancient civilization, and even a twinge of fantasy.

Buy - Amazon, Barnes and Noble,

Disclaimer - In exchange for an honest review, I received this book for free through Tracy's Caravan.
