I listened to the audiobook version and it started out by really grabbing me. The story of this mysterious child and who she was....who did she belong to. Everyone wanted to claim her as their own child. I enjoyed all of the characters and their stories—their families, loves, heartbreak, even a stolen pig. However towards the end, I felt that the story was starting to drag a bit. And with an audiobook, you can’t really skim through the pages. I was very satisfied with the ending though. Was she an angel sent down to this small village? I love this author and the imagery she evokes in her books. I would recommend this one but it just felt a little long for me. I will continue reading Ms. Satterfield’s books.
