I have enjoyed this incredible page-turner, filled with magical realism, relationship ups ans downs and a multi-generational quest for truth and peace of mind.
I fell in love and came to admire Cassie’s character for her strength and determination to help others and to learn to use her “gift” in a healthy way. The plot is beautifully woven and I had such a pleasant experience with the unusual sea-glass symbolism. Molly and Cassie are opposites trying to come together into harmony, same with Molly and Own, Molly and Nana Mary. Of course, Molly is the key and she has to consciously solve her psychological issues and understand herself by accepting her gift after a lifetime of negation and hiding.
Somehow I wished the story had had a more rounded feeling to it, as there was so much about the “drowning” and less about the training Cassie was getting from Nana Mary. I guess I wished to learn more about Mary as she had so much of the knowledge that helped everything end well.
All in all, this is a must-read and definitely one of the best in its genre for 2016.
Thanks so much to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.
