This book managed to really draw me in. I experienced the story along with the main character Kyou, I often couldn't hold back the tears as the story was powerful and sad. I imagined the beautiful natural scenery, from the description of which I felt in harmony with nature. The girl Kya left me with conflicting feelings, on the one hand, I sympathized with her and was close to her feelings, on the other hand, I disapproved of some of her behavior, although it was hard to judge when I was not "in her shoes".

 

There are two storylines intertwined in the book - the investigation of a murder mystery and the story through the eyes of a teenage girl who grew up in the wilderness.

 

I really liked and was impressed by the nature messages that Tate and Kya passed on to each other, overall I found their relationship interesting, inspiring, and very well described.

 

Towards the end of the book, I felt a certain despair in places, at the same time I found some of the scenes portrayed very harshly, so I don't know if I would recommend the book to more sensitive people, although I liked it very much overall.

 

The very ending was really surprising to me, but maybe it felt more realistic than if it had been a happy ending.

 

I would recommend the book to be read by anyone who likes mystery stories and who has ever also been a bit searching for their relationship with people, e.g. feeling lonely, also to anyone who appreciates a strong story against a background of engaging descriptions of nature.

For me, writing is an opportunity to express my thoughts, to immerse myself in the world of my characters, and it's also a moment for myself....
