The Crane Wife, by Patrick Ness

This is a gently captivating story that integrates bits and pieces of the fairy tale with the contemporary world.  It includes an odd mixture of characters who are fantastically flawed and loveable.  The mixture of artistry, sweetness and tragedy are an inescapable delight.  I’m already thinking I’d like to reread it.  Highly recommend this for anyone who is a fan of fairy tales, love stories or the quirky artist.
