There’s passion, adventure, nonstop action, and secrets that make the pages fly by.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews

Tinged with humor that never overshadows the poignancy and peopled with remarkable characters (especially the precocious Melody) who will steal your heart, this one’s a keeper.”—Romantic Times BOOKreviews
