Wanda Johnston, aka “ Chloe”, has seen more in life than anyone should ever have to. It should be enough for her to have given up hope, but the problem is she hasn’t. Her problem is that she doesn’t seem to realize anything that’s happening around her; it’s like things click on an all too low level for her. Jordy, Chloe’s friend/caretaker first tries to forge a life in the city with her, but eventually has to flee on a mission. Jordy is determined to get Chloe to open her eyes to things and truly “see” the beauty in the world.
This book is expertly written, in a way that the reader can relate to both Jordy and Chloe. Actually, Chloe and I seem like we would make great friends. Her life’s happenings and troubles are big issues throughout the novel, but they make her all the more a round character. And Jordy’s determined and caring personality also gives him the air of a wonderful friend. The plot in this story is somewhat hackneyed, but still enjoyable. It’s a different view on the traditional “revival of the zest in life” theme. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs to be reminded of the beauty and loveliness in just being.
