Right from the very first few sentences I was drawn into this story,and it held me throughout.It was a very intense story,but handled with plenty of hope ,and by the last hour(chapter) I almost had to pull over I was so involved in what was happening.This was the second book I've read by this author(The Lost Hours)and I will definately be listening (reading)more.

I really enjoyed this book.It took me back to my childhood watching The Waltons.Anyone who enjoys that type of family story telling will surely enjoy this book.It is told from the 1st person perspective of 5 family mambers,but mostly from 2 sisters 14 and 9 yrs of age.From the start I was hooked,wanting to know what would happen next.Was sorry when it ended.
