Emily is still dealing with the loss of her parents. She has gone from a young girl who feels like she had enough love and stability to change the world to a young adult who feels like she is never going to get over the loss of her parents.
Emily has a support system that loves her and a new job assignment that she is partly excited, partly nervous, and partly regretting taking.
I can't wait to see how the historical elements tie into this story. This book sounds fantastic!
