Writing and Tears

Book Review – Raven’s Mountain by Wendy Orr | Reading Upside Down

A very nice review by Susan Whelan, who confesses to shedding a tear near the end. I have to admit that I shed a tear about there too, when I was reading the proofs for the Canadian edition, which will be called Facing the Mountain. (I know I wrote it, I know what happens… but I do care about these people and emotion gets me every time!)
