I had been so impatiently waiting for the release of this one ever since I finished reading the first in the series. Carrie Turansky did an amazing job of creating unforgettable characters that helplessly grip your heart. I can’t imagine the struggle children went through who were taken from their families and shipped overseas to be adopted (or even just taken in for their labor) by strangers. Then for them to not only lose their parents or other caregivers, but to be ripped from their own siblings without the hope or assurance that they’d ever see each other again. The level of trauma these kids had to overcome is astounding. Through the two installments of this series I think the author did a great job of capturing the heartache without killing the hope. Even though the characters went through a lot of tough stuff, you could still see God at work. I really enjoyed both books in this series and know that the characters will be ones that stay with me. I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next!
