Review From User :
I think so far this is one of the best book I've read on 2019. It's so emotional, heart warming, poignant, amazing story of three people who try to live with the hand life's dealt them.
Jo, in a remission from cancer, Gabe, fighting with his depression and a little girl Ursa who defines herself as an alien brings them together and seal their fates.
The story is about living not only surviving, staying strong and seeing the worthiness of your own life. Trio is surprising combination who complete which other. Jo, realistic, fighter, Ursa is positive dreamer and Gabe is wounded, exhausted, broken but not tarnished kind of hero.
It's perfectly written book gives you hope, joy and positive look into yourself.
I think this is a fantastic debut novel and I cannot wait to read the new books of the writer sooner.
An Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestseller.
In this gorgeously stunning debut, a mysterious child teaches two strangers how to love and trust again.
After the loss of her mother and her own battle with breast cancer, Joanna Teale returns to her graduate research on nesting birds in rural Illinois, determined to prove that her recent hardships have not broken her. She throws herself into her work from dusk to dawn, until her solitary routine is disrupted by the appearance of a mysterious child who shows up at her cabin barefoot and covered in bruises.
The girl calls herself Ursa, and she claims to have been sent from the stars to witness five miracles. With concerns about the child’s home situation, Jo reluctantly agrees to let her stay – just until she learns more about Ursa’s past.
Jo enlists the help of her reclusive neighbor, Gabriel Nash, to solve the mystery of the charming child. But the more time they spend together, the more questions they have. How does a young girl not only read but understand Shakespeare? Why do good things keep happening in her presence? And why aren’t Jo and Gabe checking the missing children’s website anymore?
Though the three have formed an incredible bond, they know difficult choices must be made. As the summer nears an end and Ursa gets closer to her fifth miracle, her dangerous past closes in. When it finally catches up to them, all of their painful secrets will be forced into the open, and their fates will be left to the stars.
