I loved reading about Mammoth Caves. I remember going there when I was in fourth or firth grade. This was a while ago. I remember the rickety bridge over the bottomless pitt. It was scary. The blind fish were neat also. If you go there now it is much safer and the river has gone underground more so you can’t see the fish anymore. This book took me back to my childhood and it was a nice romance. I had a hard time putting this down to go to work or to sleep. I enjoyed Rebekah and her family and Devlin but my favorite character was Tolly. I would have loved him to be a guide for me. I received this book from bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion.
