Publisher's Summary

Celia is in desperate need of a change - a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon's Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She's wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters?

What Celia doesn't plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia's past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.

Courage and love

I loved this story! I've read the book and listened to it again, and enjoyed aspects of both. The narrator did a great job of capturing the sweetness of the characters, and her voice was very pleasant to listen to. I loved the characters, even if I was a little frustrated with their actions (or lack of actions) at times. The author handled a difficult subject matter very well, and was able to keep the book clean while still helping us understand the depth of feelings the characters felt. Very well done!

Heavy but sweet

Author dealt with heartbreaking content well, plus it was nice and clean. The narrator spoke too softly at times, sounded a bit odd

It's okay

It's okay, but pretty slow and boring. I couldn't insert myself into the story and the characters are rather dull. The beginning is good, but I couldn't finish the rest.

A Story of Magic

Life has been hard for Celia. An addict mother who died from an overdose and foster care. She moves from Chicago to Sisters, Oregon. Life can hold promise with new beginnings. A story of healing and growing. Great performance.

Excellent story!

The title intrigued me and the story exceeded my expectations! Wonderful plot, fully defined characters. The reader, Laura Bannister was the perfect voice for this audible. I’m going to buy the book.
