With the encouragement of a brother who’s in on her secret, Prissie finds her feet. With the help of the bane who’s now a brother, she takes a stand. As spring comes to the orchard, a cryptic remark from Abner hints at West Edinton’s long-kept secret. A beloved aunt returns from overseas. A faded angel takes up residence atop the Pomeroys’ refrigerator. A treasured friend must say goodbye. While ranks of the Faithful rally to defend what’s most precious, Prissie discovers that angels aren’t the only ones who are Sent.
This book is written from the point of view of a young lady that is part of the spirit world. It mixes the spirit and the real world in a fashion that completely boggled my mind. I will be the first to admit that I am not a fan of fantasy, but this carried it beyond that for me. While I found it difficult to enjoy, I could see one of my teenage sons enjoying the story immensely and will be passing it on to them to read now. It seems to be a great teen read, exploring some of the possibilities of imagination of what the spirit world might be like if we could see it.
This book was given to me by BookSneeze for review and the opinions contained therein are my own.
