But Vesey Washington is still living across the creek, and theirs is a complicated relationship-he was once her best friend . . . and also part of the reason she's stayed away so long. When Ally discovers a message her father left behind asking her to quit running, it seems her past isn't through with her yet.As Ally's wandering spirit wrestles with a deep longing to flee again, a young woman on the other side of the world escapes her life of slavery in the rock quarries of Nepal. A mysterious sketchbook leads Sunila Kunari to believe there's more to her story than she's ever been told, and she's determined to follow the truth wherever it leads her.A deep current intertwines the lives of these three souls, and a destiny of freedom, faith, and friendship awaits them all on the banks of Molasses Creek.
I LOVED THIS BOOK. I cannot even put it into words. When I started it and it went back and forth between Ally and Sunila, I was concerned I wouldn't like it. Whenever Sunila had a chapter, I was confused as to why she was even a main character, and why we were learning about her. Once I realized how she was connected, I couldn't put down the book until I finished it! It was an emotional ending that brought me to tears, but it was so worth it.
