This book was heartbreaking and beautiful. The writing was so lyrical. I loved the flashback and memory scenes. I loved the relationship between Leigh and Axel, and how art was such an important part of the story. I also loved the aspects of magical realism. I absolutely loved this book and how powerful it is.
