Eighteen year old Izzy’s limited world begins to feel cramped after she completes her self-appointed book dare. After reading two-hundred and fifty books, a thought that had been once tucked away as tightly as the books on her library shelves becomes too irresistible to ignore…”Who am I?”
Memory loss prohibits Izzy from remembering her life before age seven when she was injured in a fire. Jonathan Gudwyne and his head housekeeper rescued her and took Izzy in as their own, but who did she belong to before they took her in?
Crippling panic keeps Izzy from wandering beyond the stables but Tubs, the Gudwyne’s young stable boy, encourages Izzy to go beyond the property’s rock wall to a world that promises possible answers, but also great danger. A scorched castle in the woods and a mysterious cellar filled with secrets sets Izzy on a path to the New World, where she will not only have to face her own terror but face the people responsible for her scars.
It is here, in the untamed wilds of the seventeenth century that she finds love and a home in the most unexpected of places.
I’ve heard amazing things about this book, and I was so excited about being able to get a copy! This book was delightful, and I am so glad that I was able to read it.
The plot was genius and I loved how everything slowly fell into place. This book keeps you guessing on what’s going to happen next. There were a couple things that completely took me by surprise which I loved.
I have to say that my favorite part about this book was the characters. I absolutely loved all of the different personalities and their relationship with each other. Izzy was such a sweet character, and I loved hearing about her past. It definitely added to the story. Jonathan was also a favorite of mine. I loved his and Izzy’s relationship!
And this cover guys, it is so gorgeous! I heard that the author made it and she did an amazing job.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I definitely recommend it!
