This was one that was well worth the wait. A very different storyline Cynthia has created for us to fall in love with and she has done it well! The beginning was a little iffy per say but I think that's just because it's because it is different. It came together beautifully.
Clara has her purpose just like they all do. They? The angels. Clara isn't full blooded though. Clara's purpose comes in visions, over time. She pieces these visions together. Time and time again this same guy keeps showing up. But where? And finally, the trees, pine trees, she tells her mother. And she can see the guys license plate in her vision. It's time to go where the vision has revealed.
Christian is his name, and as soon as she sees him she is drawn to him. And with all new schools that means new friends. Wendy and Angela become the closest to Clara. Wendy seems to have this really annoying brother named Tucker that just clashes with Clara. Over time, the best of the best happens, and Christian and Clara start dating! Sadly though, he has to leave for the summer, and so does Wendy, and Angela, leaving only Tucker. Wendy knows that Clara is bummed because everybody is gone so she sends Tucker over to entertain her. Thing is, he seems to return every day. This is the guy who always teased and aggravated Clara. Now, he's coming and taking her to do different adventures every day? Hmm? She's supposed to be working on figuring out her purpose with Christian. All that she does know is that it has to do with fire. Playing instead of focusing. Tsk, tsk.
It's almost time. Will Clara do what she's supposed to do? She's more worried about knowing if she'll know what to do than actually doing the right thing. Will she make the right choice in time?
