had a feeling I was in for a treat Man was she ever right, I was totally charmed by this one it s such an unusual and gorgeous read.I adore books about unlikely friendships and the sudden bond that develops between Jo and Ursa was the type that I like most of all Jo is a broken woman, she battled breast cancer at a very young age and has isolated herself from the outside world She s an ornithologist making it very easy to live a secluded life and the last thing she wants to deal with is a young girl Ursa is the type of character that grabs your attention and your heart instantly, she s such a strange child, but she s precocious as well and she wiggled her way into my heart just as fast as she got into Jo s These two were both incredibly well developed, very deep and complex and extremely fascinating, especially Ursa I was dying to hear her full story because the story she shares with Jo was so out there and I read this one fast because I was so intrigued.This had such a magical feel to it, both because of Ursa s individuality but also because Vanderah has a bewitching writing style I absolutely loved the meaning behind this, it was about the bonds of love, second chances and most importantly the power of keeping hope alive.Where the Forest Meets the Stars in three words Enchanting, Insightful and Extraordinary flag 19 likesLike see review Lisa I selected this

romantic tension and a magical twist that keeps the reader guessing to the end One of my favorite parts of the book is its unusual setting it is full of biological details that will interest bird and

well done A beautiful example that mesmerized me When I knew my mother would be dead in a few months, I had two choices She looked at him I could distance myself from the pain or get closer to it Maybe because I d lost my dad without getting a chance to tell him what he meant to me, I decided to get closer I got so close, her pain and fear became my own We shared everything and loved each other like we never had when death was some distant thing In the end, part of me died with her I m not recovered from it even now, but I made the conscious choice to enter the darkness with her Everyone I know who s lost someone they love has voiced regrets they wish they d done this or that or loved them I have no regrets None Further still Sh t Gets Real Heart broken but temporarily It
