This book shares the moving tale of a young girl dealing with her strict religious family's reaction to her sister's sin, which ended in her being sent away. Trying to come to terms with the situation, she begins writing her sister letters and ends up finding herself along the way. This book deals with heavy subject matters and I would not recommend it to children under 11.
