The cover image of Meg Moseley's latest novel, A Stillness of Chimes, is the first thing to grab your attention. The vividness of the blackberry juice-covered fingers intrigued me as I sat there staring at the 3 blackberries sitting so still in the outstretched palm. I wondered if it would be a tale of life's relation to blackberries. It was...to an extent.

Overall, this is a tale of unending love, amidst unclear circumstances and grief. The love of a child for their parents and the belief in the power of that love. This is also a tale about growth.
