Maureen Lang is one of the few Christian authors who is truly a good writer. Her grasp of historical detail is very rare. This book is a beautiful and realistic look at mental and physical illness. Fragile X is a rare illness which causes mental retardation that passes through the family. Maureen Lang's son has the illness so she knows exactly what the characters feel like. I think that I liked Rebecca best of all the characters as she is the one I am the most like. I did not like Simon at all at first but he soon showed a different side. Lang's prose is at times very beautiful and her descriptions are wonderful.
