With the year almost to a close, this being one of the last books I read this year, this has to be the best was saved for last. Oh my goodness. I can't express in words how beautiful and engaging gliding through this book was. This was my first book read from Marisa de los Santos and I seriously need to back read. Such beautiful writing she has and as much as I wanted closure to get the answers to the plot, I really didn't want the book to end.
We are introduced to Clare, a young woman who is about to make the mistake of her life until a mysterious woman decides to give the courage to be true to herself. To her surprise, a couple weeks later, upon hearing that this mysterious woman died, to her shock she inherited her house and the secrets that lie within. Even though their encounter was brief, when Clare entered her home, there was this magnetic emotional pull that she felt towards Edith. When she stumbles upon a couple of books in the house, questions arise to whom this woman was and piques her curiosity to learn more. During her search, Clare discovers secrets about her life that hit to close to home. Alternately from the 50s and now, I'll Be Your Sky introduces an intricate plot that comes full circle for the reader unraveling layer by layer giving the reader something worth waiting for in the end.
Overall, there isn't anything about the book that I would change. The progression of the plot has you hanging on every word. There is something special with the transition between Clare and Edith that gives the story its depth and with every layer peeled permeates the roots to grow into something wonderful. I loved it and I know you will too. If you haven't read it, add it to your TBR.
