This is such a gripping and compelling read! I stayed up into the wee hours completely absorbed and unable to put it down. It is the story of Izzy in 1995 and the story of Clara beginning in 1928. Clara's story is tragic and heartbreaking while Izzy's story has it's own tragedies. Still, there is strength and hope in these characters and their stories merge in a beautiful way before the book is done.
