“Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.
Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.
But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony’s dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it’s literally part of her somehow.
And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past…and discovers her mother didn’t leave to start a new life somewhere. She’s trapped in the hidden world within the valley.
Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.”
What a magical story!
So many elements of this novel allow you to create such a vivid imagination of what it would be like to live within Briony’s world.
I found it really interesting how the aspects of Briony’s love story, the land that she inhabited, and the idea that her mother could still be alive fit together into a puzzle that shaped her journey.
This novel has just the right amount of mystery and magic that it makes it hard to end your reading without just having to get to the next page or chapter.
The magical themes rooted deep throughout the story gives it a light-hearted texture that has the ability to transport you back to when you were a child and remind you of the beauty of having a creative mind.
I really appreciate DUGA’s fantastical writing style which gave me the ability to relax and engross myself into a world where anything was possible.
This book is so worth the read and I encourage all dreamers to pick this gem up and make it one of your next favorites!
