"A beautiful love story… Ms. Donati's artistic talent for description will take you where you have never been before. No one else has this gifted talent. The skill of making you feel you are actually there experiencing every moment, every chill, every season, and every breath… This is a definite must. Remarkably written… Outstanding."
