"Walking a lonely forested valley on a spring morning in upstate New York, having been hired by a developer to dowse the land, Cassandra Brooks comes upon the shocking vision of a young girl hanged from a tree. When she returns with authorities to the site, the body has vanished, leaving in question Cassandra{u2019}s credibility if not her sanity. The next day, on a return visit with the sheriff to have another look, a dazed, mute missing girl emerges from the woods, alive and the very picture of Cassandra{u2019}s hanged girl. What follows is the narrative of ever-deepening and increasingly bizarre divinations that will lead this gifted young woman, the struggling single mother of twin boys, hurtling toward a past she{u2019}d long since thought was behind her..."--Book flap.

I liked this book. The characters were interesting and the story was too. Well written.

I really liked this book. The language used was descriptive and interesting. Specific detail was give to describing nature, naming the flora and building a intricate image. The author's examination of spirituality contrasting the mother's Christianity with the father's undefined spiritual connectedness was interesting. The story builds slowly but kept me wanting more. I listened to the audio book available via Overdrive and the narrator was a perfect fit for the main character.

This was an okay read. I think that I expected more from it. At times, I found myself skimming through the text just to hit on the major plot points.
