This is one of the best books I’ve read in such a long time. The story is about Mila and her journey after aging out of the foster care system. She accepts a job on a farm teaching children, who like her, have been through the foster system. The setting is hauntingly beautiful...in every meaning of the word haunted. As Mila tries to acclimate to her new home, she finds that her past has followed her there and she grapples with ghosts from her past that refuse to stay buried.
This is a true gem of a book with gorgeous writing and masterful story telling. Mila is a wonderfully flawed and devastatingly injured protagonist who will make you feel all the things, above all love and hope. I highly recommend this book!
