How does the environment interact with Misty's emotions? Would that relationship still exist without her empathy? How might it be different? Do you feel like you have a special connection to anything in particular (nature, a specific place, animals, etc.), and if so, why do you think this is?

I loved the way Misty's deep, spiritual connection to the environment is portrayed. I often have moments where I feel deeply connected to nature and animals, and it was exciting to see that type of feeling taken to another level in this book. The writing about Misty's connection to the ecosystem was so luminous, and this piece of the narrative was so unique--it really stood out to me.

Nature is always changing but never opposing the change. Nature can just let things be and not have to "fix" anything...that is why nature can be so calming. There's an aspect of nature that you can rely on...it's there, it will always be there, it doesn't judge or expect anything from you. This is why Misty has such a special connection to nature. She can trust it.

My natural connections are the beach, right by the water's edge and a magnificent sunset.
