This book was equal parts heartbreaking and sweet. Abandoned children, left to run a farm for themselves, making the most out of the untamed west of America. Magic is still wild and unpredictable and all of this comes together in the beautiful story. 4/5 stars
Wow this was a long book! And consequently, it was a possible 5/5 star book right up until the last 1/4th or 1/5 where I found that it seemed to run off the rails and be more of a recounted summary than a cohesive story. Just a little disappointing. 3/5 Stars.
