Twixt by Diane J Reed

   There are many tales of how magical and lucky the Irish are. What if it weren't a tale? What if it were real?  Rose's relatives carried a long line of fairy twixt women.  Rose knew she had the ability to see the future in liquid for someone else, but not for herself. She kept herself distant from her life, her heart. Well, until she almost lost her daughter. Slowly but surely she started to see she needed to open her mind and heart and let the colors in.  Rose knew her family was cursed. Not being able to tell their own futures.  With her friend, Amy's help, they just might give the family curse a run for it's money.  Rose went back to Ophir Creek to start over and that's exactly what she'd have to do.  If she didn't, she might lose her daughter, her sister and her very own life.  It takes some time, but Rose finally sees the colors and feels the magic. 

      What can I say about this book? It's fabulous! Well written!  Fanciful! Romantic!  Over the top, you're probably saying. NO! It doesn't begin to cover how terrific this book is.  I loved that the story began with her ancestors and laid out the foundation for the rest of the book. I enjoyed the struggle Rose had with herself to finally let go and really embrace who she is.  The story is absolutely amazing.  This is one I'll read again and again. You'll find something new every time you read this one.  Please do yourself a favor,  get this book and read it. You'll be giving yourself a magical treat!!

   I found the beginning a bit confusing because it spoke of her ancestors and then jumped to another ancestor. However, after you get into the real story, you completely understand why they were important.

   I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because my heart is still dancing with Rose and Chance.
