Synopsis

A girl with a telepathic gift finds a boy clinging to his last hope during the war-torn climate of Europe, 1940.

At fifteen, Kit Cavendish is one the oldest evacuees to escape London at the start of the Second World War due to a long term illness that sees her stuck in a wheelchair most of the time. But Kit has an extraordinary psychic power: she can put herself into the minds of others, see through their eyes, feel their emotions, even talk to them – though she dares not speak out for fear of her secret ability being exposed.

As Kit settles into her new life in the North Wales village of Bryn Eira Bach, solitude and curiosity encourage her to gain better control of her gift. Until one day her search for information on the developing war leads her to the mind of Henri, a seventeen-year-old Norwegian boy witnessing the German occupation of his beloved city, Oslo. As Henri discovers more about the English girl occupying his mind, the psychic and emotional bonds between them strengthen and Kit guides him through an oppressive and dangerous time.

There are secrets to be uncovered, both at home and abroad, and it’s up to Kit and Henri to come together and fight their own battles in the depths of the world’s greatest war.

Review

This book is sooo good that if you don’t pick it up and give it a try, I feel sorry for you. You’re missing out. It’s nearing the end of April, and I just realized that not one book had yet made it into my favorite reads of 2014. I make a pinterest board for my favorites — the books I don’t want to forget and want to share with others. And when I went to go add this book to my board, I realized that I didn’t have one yet. Not one of the more than 30 books I’ve read this year so far has made that list. But this book does.

When I say that it’s a page turner, I mean that you’ll stay up until at least 3 am turning pages. When I say you won’t want to put it down, I mean you’ll brush your teeth while reading it. And when I say that it’s captivating, I mean that the characters will stick in your head as though you live with them, or at least have seen the movie. And Henri? *Swoon*

The author’s style reminds me of CS Lewis – which is a huge compliment since he’s my favorite author. Typically it takes me a little while to get used to the language of a British-style author, but that’s never been the case with Lewis, and that’s not the case for Finn. For me the story didn’t really take off until I was about 20 pages in, so don’t let the slow start fool you, pick up this book and you’re in for a ride! Pssst….by the way – it’s currently FREE for Kindle.
