I agree with making one book two - I think that's the right course for this work. I want to do a bit more reading (of both) but your instincts are on. The good news is that it is very enjoyable reading, so I will enjoy giving you the larger view of this ....... I'll be back.

Lovely writing, Helen. And a great story. Found myself urging Renia to do well in her quest.

A great read for your intended market.

Therefore happily shelved.
