I was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this book. The beginning was slow; I felt like a lot of it was just waiting for something important to happen. But the last third was exciting, and though there was a (small) plot hole at the end, overall things wrapped up together quite nicely.

I enjoyed this unique book from start to finish-each story pulls you in and keeps your attention until the chapter ends. I do wish the main characters interacted with each other more, but I realize the author intentionally kept their connections loose. Overall a great read.

They best word I can think of to describe this book is…”alright”. I was a little worried going in after reading some of the reviews, but the religious aspect wasn‘t as overwhelming as I expected. Could it be 300 pages shorter? For sure. Every time you think it‘s wrapping up…something else happens. Gets kind of repetitive, but overall a decent read.

Rereading this book, I read it years ago and it stuck with me! Hopefully it will be as good as I remember

I didn‘t really know what to expect of this book, but I didn‘t expect it to be a mirror image of what is currently happening around us. An exaggerated image, but similar nonetheless. The pandemic, climate change, the reality that fear can stir up horrific hatred in the world- all things we see today. But was disappointed how little Shana grew as a character- pretty much ended up the same as she was at the start. But the ending…just awful. Sigh.
