I can't recommend this book highly enough. It will be more of an interesting read if you are familiar with Jane Austen's writings of unfortunate love and attractions between differing classes. Without that experience, this book is still so entertaining with many different vital relationships interplaying with each other for their own themes and struggles. The characters are bears and this is a revamp of a fairy tale, and an interesting one indeed!

Imagine, Jane Eyre mixed with the story feel of The Secret Garden!
