Reviewed by Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite Deep as a Tomb by Dorothy A. Winsor is a moral tale full of heart. Myla is one of the Forest, one with the culture and medicine. She believes in protecting the Forest and the love she has with Kaven. With the prince’s imminent arrival and her father’s growing demands for her to open tombs, she finds herself at a crossroads. Her father has her life thought out, planning to use her abilities to gain power. Baren is the prince arriving from the city to visit his grandmother. He’s used to being sent to manors to study with other people, but everything changes when his guard is murdered. He’s driven to find the killer, the thieves robbing travelers, and bring them to justice. When he and Myla cross paths, their purposes in life mix in ways they didn’t expect. Deep as a Tomb is about opposites. Baren and Myla are from two very different worlds. Baren has always been in a city and everyone gives him a difficult time. Everyone immediately looks down on him because of his title and his origins. Myla feels at one with the Forest and uses the plants to heal others. Both have their lives planned for them. Neither of them feels like they have a choice in the person they become in the future. This novel is about finding your voice and getting the free will to make your own choices. Dorothy A. Winsor writes with twists and turns that are perfect for young audiences and adults who enjoy a good mystery. Everyone has a secret. Every secret leads to a bigger picture. Deep as a Tomb is an enriching story about hope, overcoming differences, and charting your own path in life. A must-read!
