Iris is a seventeen year old girl who suffers from severe asthma. Her life has been quite sheltered, in part due to her poor health; but there seems to be more to the story than just that. Her world is shrouded in mystery and her father seems bent on keeping her in the dark on so many issues.
For as long as she can remember, she has lived with her father and a woman named Diana, who home-schools and provides care for her. For years Emma has had recurring dreams which she can't seem to put out of her mind. In particular, she dreams of an ethereal home on a secluded island.
When Iris learns she will be traveling with Diana to the island home where her mother and father had once lived, her dreams start coming back to her in full force. Iris, who has no recollection of the island, begins to realize the parallels between her dreams and the place where she now resides.
As Iris begins to learn the truth behind her past, and the realities of her world, she comes to understand the sacrifices which have been made over the years to protect her from the secrets she has yet to fully discover.
Owlet, by Emma Michaels, is a refreshingly unique book with an introduction which will entice and enthrall readers. The book starts out very strong with a bit of a cliff-hanger for a finish. Many unanswered questions will most surely be revealed in the sequel to this beautifully penned book.
Owlet has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
