So many things were so good about this novel that it’s a little hard to know where to start. I am really into otherwordly fiction lately and this was completely enjoyable. I think what made it work so well was that the conflict was executed so skillfully, but subtly, on so many levels. I had to make myself keep it off my nightstand, because I would have read all night. It didn’t have the same poignancy as Time Traveler’s Wife, but I’m okay with a no-tears-type book.
