    Story
    "A good book"

    A long listen but I loved this story. Basically it is a story based on a sisters love for her brother and her journey to find him.

    Anna adopts the name of Anastasie for the encounters of many characters and challeges that must be accomplished in order to gain trust from these not so trusting people. These all aid in assisting in Anna's search for her brother.
