If you like magic realism and do not mind three separate timelines, then this book is for you. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The pacing was just right, and the author wrote the twists well. There were a few romance stories that felt genuine and not at all forced.
Gracelynn Doherty was the main protagonist of this story. I enjoyed her personality and spunk. She developed her tough exterior because of her rough childhood. At a certain point in Gracie’s life, her grandmother adopts her, raises her as her own while teaching Gracie her craft.
Deidre is another protagonist of this story. Like Gracelynn, Deidre has a strong personality and determination. She has a love hate relationship with her mother but is very much a daddy’s girl. She has a tough life because of the time era and location of the story.
I can understand where some confusions between characters can happen. Deidre and Gracelynn share a parallel story for a reason, but written well enough, you can distinguish between the two.
The story has three separate timelines. Each occurs 50 years apart but interconnects with each other. Most of the story takes place in the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas during the depression era. The author did a great job intertwining the magic with the everyday life and religious thought within the time era.
I enjoyed this book very much. It was a great book, and I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who enjoys fantasy, magic realism, multiple timelines, and romance.
*I received an ARC from NetGalley, and this is my honest opinion.
I give this book a 4/5
