Maeve brings together many many characters from her others books; The Copper Beech, Evening Class, Scarlet Feather, Quentins, Nights of Rain and Stars, Whitehorn Woods and Heart and Soul... If you are a person who hates when a book ends cause you miss the characters, this is the author for you!
And this lady writes... NOVELS. And each person's lives are intertwined with each other's. I love it. One day, I would like to start from the very beginning, and listen to each book from the beginning of the series to the end. Although you would have NO problem picking up a random book and diving right in, as each of her books can stand alone.
If you do pick this up (ideally from your library) then make SURE to get the unabridged version... honestly, why anyone would choose an abridged copy is beyond me! You lose MOST of the story with those "cliff note" versions!
