After having read both _Broken Road_ and more recently, _Full Circle_ (both by Cindy Rush), I am now experiencing feelings similar to those after I drop off a loved one at the airport: I'm happy for the time we've had together, but I'm sad because I'm saying good-bye. I will miss Roxie, Caleb, Cole, and the other characters that Rush so brilliantly created. The characters, with their realistic quirks and flaws, were the type that are easy to relate to. The story line was interesting, and I found myself thinking about it when I was not reading. I am happy to have read these books. Both will stay with me for a long time.
