Mesmerizing in every way imaginableYou’ll want for nothing less than to hop a train to the last stop in hopes to take a ferry to an island which houses a home filled with magical children. Your heart will yearn for the story to continue. You’ll find yourself believing yet again in the hope for humanity and you’ll be warmed by the reminder that love and kindness comes in all forms. By far the most beautiful book I’ve read in years..Score: 5/5

A wonderful comforting and loving readI have not been moved like this by a story for a while. It is easy to read and follow, while still dealing with some important topics.

Heartwarming GemThis is a beautiful book of unconditional love and trust. Easy in prose, difficult in life. The book begins when Linus Baker is tasked to investigate and make recommendations for the House on the Cerulean Sea, an orphanage, on a remote island. However, no one ever goes there to adopt children and so Mr. Baker’s trip is a challenge. Mr Baker lives alone, the same job for 15 years, likely the same house, nothing changes day-to-day. He’s happy this way, or is he? Upon arrival, he is overwhelmed with the beauty of the island. In fact he’s overwhelmed by many things that aren’t the norm. An here begins the story. The story in itself isn’t really new per se, nor are the prejudices and responses of people when something is different and we don’t take the time to understand for ourselves. However, there is a delightful twist in the story that really emphasizes prejudgment, without understanding. This is a magical and enchanting tale. It feels like home where there should be true love, hope, loyalty and trust. Trust was difficult for the children at the orphanage because of previous broken promises, trust and abuse. But one step at a time for all of them brings change that starts quietly and slowly. After all that reading and focus, my allergies flared up and I found my eyes watering uncontrollably, then my sinuses kicked in and I was forced to finish the book with a wad of Kleenex. Sigh ... let’s hope if you read his your allergies don’t flare up. 😉.Score: 4/5

This book has my heartIt has been a really long time since I have fallen in love with a book, I laughed, I cried, and was totally entertained the whole time. He describes the characters in ways that you can picture them in your head. His attention to detail is amazing. I would recommend this book to everyone!.Score: 5/5

New favorite bookThis was so wonderful to read, the amount of joy I got at the end of this book is truly amazing. The main character Linus is a 40 year old who’s been in the same job for years. Despite it being a monotonous life he leads, he is still very serious and strangely optimistic in regards to his work. The very fact that he’s so “normal” is what leads him to a journey of self discovery and love. Linus’ point of view was very interesting, especially in the contrast of what he truly believed and in what he did. The other characters were also fun to read, they all brought something to the story from the children to the cranky cat..Score: 5/5

Don’t you wish you were here?This says it all. I cried at the end. I needed to be reminded of goodness and love. I needed to be reminded what is truly important in this world. “I am but paper. Brittle and thin. I am held up to the sun, and it shines right through me. I get written on, and I can never be used again. These scratches are a history. They’re a story. They tell things for others to read, but they only see the words, and not what the words are written upon. I am but paper, and though there are many like me, none are exactly the same. I am parched parchment. I have lines. I have holes. Get me wet, and I melt. Light me on fire, and I burn. Take me in hardened hands, and I crumple. I tear. I am but paper. Brittle and thin.”.Score: 5/5

A MUST ReadOne of the best Queer novels I have read in a long, long time. The trope of found family is done PERFECTLY here with some beautiful moments between every little bit of the cast - every character is important to the plot. The subtle and building romance throughout the novel was realistic. Fantastically written. The world building is spot on. Top 5 for sure! I love this book with all my heart..Score: 5/5
