Why did I read this? I have read three previous books by the author and really enjoyed, so I thought I would try this.
A creator who is less than a god with the power to create grass, flowers, trees and other pieces of nature decides to try her hand at creating a human being. She is not able to effectively craft a soul and it has all kinds of consequences for her, her creation and her husband. She had been an ethereal being but in her creating the being she becomes human with a loss of memory and becomes a slave to a person with many personality disorders. She is haunted by a ethereal being who she feels she has a connection to, but can’t figure it out.
Grade-C, I couldn’t figure out the point of the story and it just seemed to wander all over the place with no real conclusion.
