Heaven is rays of sunlight dancing slowly on wheat stalks. It’s wind twirling itself around chimes hung from low tree branches, and robust bursts of scent and color, far beyond anything describable with words.
Heaven is a flightless crow, a promise of forever tied to a necklace, and hidden love letters tucked away safely inside a tree.
Heaven is a fire-haired boy named Rust and his love for Ancel, a boy full of storm clouds.
Heaven is all the tiny threads of hope that hold them together.
THIS WAS SUCH A CUTE BOOK!!! When I first started it I set myself up to be gravely disappointed but oh boy am I glad I was proven wrong. Just look at the title, it is bound to be adorable.
Sure, Rust is a little weird. No scratch that, he is plenty weird. But it is charming and although I was a little apprehensive towards him at first I fell a little bit in love with him towards the end. Ancel is the typical troubled boy who has a problem with his sexuality. It should be boring and unoriginal but it wasn’t. He will make your heart ache, but it will be a good ache.
The plot itself is very good and entertaining. It had some twists and turns but it all felt realistic. Nothing was over the top and the whole things were perfectly balanced. The writing was very good and quite captivating. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to read more from this author.
Do I recommend it?
