    This book is riveting -- at times funny, always thought-provokin

    This book is riveting -- at times funny, always thought-provoking, often poignant. Its theme is taken from the Robert Frost poem the protagonist quotes: "two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I could not travel both and be one traveler." What's our path in life? When we're shaken from the path we wanted, can we still make the journey our own?

    A lovely tale of travel, suspense, and passion......

    Hellenga has done a wonderful job in creating a believable character, and putting her in a beautiful setting. The story is for book and art lovers everywhere. I enjoyed the detail to the book conservation that took place with the 'mud angels' and was particularly happy that this book strove to pay such attention to a story along those lines. Interesting, and Unique. I have passed this gem on to many others as a must read.

    Philosophical take on what it means to live

    A journey to finding, re-binding, and finally letting go of a singularily unique tome leads a young woman to discover what pleasures can be found in day-to-day as well as one-in-a-lifetime experiences. Loved this book. A great read.
