This story drew me in and transported me to a place I didn't want to leave. The setting is turn of the century New York where two mythical beings are struggling to make their way in the world. I kept thinking about my great grandparents in New York at the same time and the struggles people endured every day. The connection with the characters and the story was vivid. I was reminded why I love to read and why I love my job. I'm looking forward to putting this one into people's hands.
