    " Another good fairy-tale, except with Lord Death instead of Fairies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 1/27/2014

    " Keturah follows a legendary hart deep into the forest and becomes lost. 3 days later Lord Death comes for her. She tells a story, but bargains one day for the ending. Each day Keturah uses her storytelling skills to gain more time to save her village. If Keturah can find her true love, Death will spare her. A fairytale comes to life, and Keturah faces the ultimate choice. "

    " A sweet romance about appreciating the small things in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 1/22/2014

    " I met Leavitt at a conference and read this book to digest some of the comments she made about it. I thought her prose was lyrical and poetic. I was slightly dismayed by the ending. The title character definitely chose to love/marry the better man, but I felt the author didn't explore the negative side effects of such a choice adequately. I find characters' motivations to be the most fascinating thing about them, and don't like it when the author glosses over them. If Leavitt had explained why Keturah made the choice she did, I would've given this book five stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jdiedrichs | 1/19/2014

    " I got a bit tired of Keturah trying to find her own true love. I think it would be better received by high school girls. I'm probably too jaded. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blond429 | 1/13/2014

    " Totally predictable, but I loved every page! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chandra Rooney | 1/11/2014

    " A lovely fairy tale--simple plot, but elegantly written and neatly executed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/7/2014

    " 3.5 stars. Quite a pleasant read. Enjoyable, poignant, wistful. My only complaint is that it is a bit too short. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah | 11/26/2013

    " It was too much of a fairy tale for me, and it didn't really hold my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 11/22/2013

    " I guessed at what they ending would be, but that didn't spoil the book because by the end, it became a much more difficult decision and yet I could understand why she would make it, in a weird way. Really interesting book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal Cook | 6/2/2013

    " One of the best books I've read all year. Loved the setting, the characters, the writing. Everything about it! Really amazing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sofia | 4/30/2013

    " Even though I predicted the end it was still a fair dance between death and Keturah. This is a unique book where you can experience a fairy tale for grown up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 2/3/2013

    " This book was shortish but good! lol i finished it in a day! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 12/9/2012

    " I really liked this book. It had a predictable ending but it was the ending that was the best and the one that I wanted. easy read, read in two days or so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lacey | 1/16/2012

    " Read for book club... at first I wasn't sure what I thought of it, but the story line drags you in and you want to find out what happens. One of the most unusual books I've ever read, but it did make me cry. Gives interesting viewpoints of death that left me thinking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Wicked Witch West | 1/2/2012

    " One of the best books ever! It's really good, and totally clean. If you love the Twilight series then you'll definately love this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl Klein | 7/5/2011

    " This is a marvelous book, thoughtful, surprising, and romantic, but always with an awareness that there are larger and more important things than romance, which gives it a depth not often seen in the here-and-now of YA literature. And the writing is pure and fine. Don't miss it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlie | 5/23/2011

    " Fluffy, short story about a girl who charms her way out of death. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 5/11/2011

    " A mysterious mythical fantasy with lovely poetic language that begs to be read aloud. Leavitt does an excellent job creating tension and building suspense to the climatic scene. She builds in subtle clues that lead to, although a surprise at first, an inevitable ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicole | 5/6/2011

    " I liked poetry of the book - how death was a person - but overall I thought it was just sort of a cheesy love story and very simple. Though I suppose it was a fast fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/27/2011

    " This one was refreshing and different. I liked the idea of unwittingly causing something by trying to prevent it. I wasn't completely sold on the ending, but it's a great one to think about and discuss afterwards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 4/24/2011

    " Liked this book. Wished Lord Death and Keturah had a more romantic interaction, the ending did satisfied me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pack | 4/23/2011

    " Dark and lovely and unique. Jesse "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 4/17/2011

    " AMAZING book!
    i absolutely LOVED this book.
    I could read it over and over againa and recommend it to anyone.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 4/11/2011

    " What a gorgeously written and plotted story. It has the atmosphere of a fairy tale, and ended just the way all fairy tales ought to end and rarely do. Brava, Leavitt, for a yarn worthy of Mann or Hesse at the height of their powers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/9/2011

    " I am extremely surprised that I haven't added this book yet. When this is by far one of my favorite love stories. (Thanks Jolee for recommending it by the way) A must-read!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 4/7/2011

    " About life and the point of living, more than it is about death. Five stars despite the sappy elements. A writer who understamds the sacrifices involved in true happiness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 4/3/2011

    " I really liked this one. I felt like it was a little too short but I really liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasmine | 4/2/2011

    " I really didn't know who Keturah was going to end up with. The author led us on a merry little goose chase with all the "suitors". Can't say that I agree with who she finally ended up with. Where's the happy ending?! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 3/29/2011

    " This book brought me to tears. It's poetic, insightful, and perfectly paced. The Creme Brulee of YA lit. I'm in awe of this author. "
