About the book:
Your soul will remember…
As a woman who wasn’t born to wealth or privilege, Abigaia has mastered the art of thievery. And she’s come to hate it. Not only is she plagued by guilt, but her shadowed upbringing and silent ways cause most of her town to question her sanity.
Yet, Abigaia’s eccentric father always taught her to be proud of her heritage. Her ancestry lies across the sea, in a prominent realm she’s read about but has never seen.
The man who desires Abigaia’s hand in marriage doesn’t share her hope of seeing the Eubeltic Realm. But disaster erupts in their path, and Abigaia’s dream may have a greater purpose—if that famed domain of her ancestors is now in crucial need of her.
This was an interesting read. I was intrigued by the way the author was able to make her main character a mute (and I was heartbroken by the tragedy that brought her silence), and somehow manage to convey her use of sign language so clearly that I could picture it as I read.
There were, however, moments when time moved strangely for me, and I found it difficult to figure out how much time had passed in the plot. I think that may be the reason that it took me longer than usual to read this book, since it didn’t flow super smoothly for me.
But overall, it was a decent read with relatively interesting characters and a good message. I would recommend this book for teen girls, especially if they are searching for a way to fit in and trying to discover what is most important to them.
