Those who fall in love with its beauty will be only mildly disappointed to finish the book, because there is a promise of more tales from this scenic wonderland.
The story of Emma Grace will have readers feeling deeply sorry for her and her experiences will bring out some rageful feelings. As the story progresses, it is hard to wait for things to go the way one hopes they will. There are so many unknowns and one has to read quickly to finally figure out who is responsible for what in the end.
As readers relive a past moment in history, they will find many actual people who have been added to the story. These characters lend authenticity and interest to the story. It is intriguing to read about their lives and have the fictional characters interacting with them as well.
