I'm barely halfway through this enchanting story and there are so many things going on, that I find it really hard to follow all of them. I love the backstories of all the characters, and especially how they seem to relate to each other to some extent, and I love the way the author is bringing out their faults, and their imperfections. Susanna is my favorite character. But I cannot help but wonder where it will all lead from now on, and what could possibly happen next with so many chapters still to go. Those villagers are not the kindest of people, and Ivy’s a stranger to their land thus very vulnerable target of their beliefs of witchcraft. And Julian is still very far away from being the knight in the shining armor, or from being the man who's willing to save the damsel in distress, and save the day.
