This strange and peculiar story caught my attention with its fable-like story telling. The characters crept into my thoughts during the quiet moments of my day: when I was drifting off to sleep, cooking dinner, or driving in my car. It's a tall tale written in a way that makes you want to believe it, to know that it's all possible. I longed to get back to it, to experience again what it made me feel while reading it, and what it made me remember about love and its consequences. I was set off balance in the most wonderful way.
