I liked the book and was amazed to find out the author, Adina Gewirtz, has five children. I think it would be hard to be a writer with that many children. The characters were believable even though they had very different points of few. There was adventure but not the kind of adventure that makes you want to keep reading until the book is finished. The adventure is more inside each character as they deal with the issues of forgiveness and what it means to be a family. It is a good book to read slowly and with a lot to think about as you go.
