It's like talking to a person that can never complete a thought or a sentence. You could argue that the characters are more than one dimensional, but I find it typical chick-lit: Men are either evil or emasculated.

This book was a really good read. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who loves a mystery. It made me think of a boy who was just too perfect to remain in this world and so was caught up to be where he belonged, spawning a local legend as a result.

Once again, A Manette Ansay has written about small town life in Wisconsin in her lovely, lyrical style. She brings her characters to life with grace, allowing you to see them with all their shortcomings, the hopes and dreams that sustain them, all the details that make them unique, yet as familiar as people you might know. A tragedy, a drowning, polarizes the townspeople, those who believe in miracles and those who only accept hard facts. Yet the circumstances surrounding the event cannot logically be explained. How is it then, that redemption is possible? What forces are in charge here? A small town story that is simple, yet simply mesmerizing!

Loved this book; one of my all time favorites. So real, could relate to every one of the characters. Real, yet fanciful captivating from beginning to end.
