    "This story was absolutely engrossing from start to finish. I bought this last week and I'm pretty sure I finished it in about 2 or 3 days total. There are so many bittersweet moments scattered throughout and it's a heartbreaking story set in the Alaska countryside that I was totally inspired one moment and devastated the next. I feel that speaks to the quality of writing found here and I would say this book deserves to be read by many."
