Far From You
by Lisa Schroeder

Description from the amazon:
Lost and alone down the rabbit hole.

Alice thought she knew

what solitude was:

Her mother—gone

Her father—remarried with a newborn daughter.

Now...

trapped

in the icy embrace

of a deadly snowstorm

Alice faces the true meaning of loneliness.

But hope

may not be as far away

as she thinks....

Quote to note:
Doughnuts.
Music.
Love.

It doesn't get
any better
than this.
- page 344, chapter The Best Medicine


My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): hope
This is a gem of a book told in verse.

I really enjoyed this this tale of life, death and love with references to Alice in Wonderland.
