This intriguing read keeps readers guessing as they attempt to distinguish the real from the fantastical in this world where the lines of reality and fantasy are blurred.
Laura Ruby’s characters engaged my sympathy as they navigated their complicated small-town lives, searching for love and a place to belong. An intriguing and heartwarming read.
