“This is a prequel to Rubin’s Hearts and Sails series, so her heroine is quite young. In this story we come to understand her desire to practice medicine. Keep the books coming!” —C.V. Lee, Paper Lantern Writer
“This novella is beautiful, poetic and dramatic prequel to the “Hearts and Sails” book series. It is expertly written, with a very good understanding of human
psychology of adults and children. It provides deeper insights into the main character in the series, Ella Parker, as she is a young teenage girl in this story.
Turns of events are totally unexpected here and I couldn’t stop reading until the very end.
Highly recommended.”—Goodreads Review
