Book Review: The Gifted


Some dreams were meant to come true. Jessamine Brady has been in the Shaker Village for half her young life, but in spite of how she loves her sisters there, she struggles to conform to the strict rules. Instead she entertains dreams of the world outside. When Tristan Cooper seems to step out of those dreams to entice her into the forbidden realm beyond the Shaker Village, her life turns upside down. Will Jessamine be able to survive the storms of the world? Or will she retreat back to the peace of Harmony Hill?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the free spirit of Jessamine kept me smiling through the entire book.  I could feel her desire to explore beyond her little wold, yet imagine the fear of actually doing so.  When you grow up being told and believing one thing, yet yearning for a peak at another you're bound to be a bit confused!  When Jessamine finally leaves Harmony Hill she has quite an adventure, the question is whether or not she'll like it enough to stay, or continue to find comfort at Harmony Hill.

The supporting characters were quite fun to read about as well!
