My readers have been the greatest reward in this journey. You have given me the confidence and the guidance. You have given me of your time; shared your most personal thoughts; and, most of all, you have found a place for this story in your hearts. And for all of this I am so very grateful.
It turns out that writing is not a solitary activity after all. I had to learn to rely on my readers for many things I couldn’t do alone. I am indebted to all my readers at every step of the way. By interacting with this story so personally, you have shown me new ways of enriching it. It is thanks to you that this novel took flight, and became yours to ponder, debate, and share. I can only hope to replicate the same magic.
