Oh Rebecca Rasmussen you did it again You reached in and wrapped your hand around my heart with your lovely but heart breaking story I loved most of the characters and the ones I didn t you made me understand why These characters leapt off the pages as did the settings which played as big a part as the main characters I should have been tipped off by the uote before the story begins Tell me the landscape in which you live and I will tell you who you are It s a story about the need for love and acceptance and what happens when those are missing in one s life The uestion of nature versus nurture ran through my mind with each generation I loved what a minor character says at one point in the story Every time you think you need to hold on let go Without spoiling the story I ll just say I think book clubs would find a lot to discuss with EvergreenEarlier I mentioned the story is lovely but heart breaking I turned the final page feeling uplifted and hopeful and so glad to have read EvergreenI received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for my opinion
