I absolutely fell in love with this book. It was such a touching story, written in beautiful language and full of heart. It’s a story about love, forgiveness, hope, and the strength of family. The author was able to vividly capture the time period, culture, and habitat of these Mayan people living in the Yucatan. The story behind the cenote, their source of water, was creepy and kept me turning the pages, wanting to know what was happening to the men in the village. For me, this was a book I didn’t want to put down, so I read it in a day. And it was worth every minute!  —Kristin Smith: Confessions of a YA Writer
