This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. There were things I liked about and things that made me uncomfortable. Before this I had never actually read any books in which one of the primary characters was a clairvoyant. Add to that, both the male and female protagonist were devoutly christian and you have a book which is a bit of a departure for me. I don't really know why but I was more able to deal with the clairvoyance than the religious overtones. I think there was a little too much going on in this book. The primary story about a boy lost in the wilderness and a man and a woman packing in on horses to rescue him was solid. Catherine Anderson could have kept to that and had a very good book on her hands. As it is, all those other things end up detracting from the story (in my opinion).
