Publisher's Summary

The author of The Deep End of the Ocean, Oprah's first Book Club selection, delivers a compelling, emotionally charged tale of tragedy, revenge, and redemption. Twelve-year-old Veronica Swan's idyllic life in a close-knit Mormon community is shattered when her two younger sisters are brutally murdered. Although her parents find the strength to forgive the deranged killer, Scott Early, Veronica cannot do the same. Years later, she sets out alone to avenge her sisters' deaths, dropping her identity and severing ties in the process. As she closes in on Early, Veronica will discover the true meaning of sin and compassion, before she makes a decision that will change her and her family's lives forever.

Mercy vs. Justice

Jacquelyn Mitchard captures the theme of revenge vs. forgiveness with a fresh approach. That she chose a young Mormon woman as her protagonist (rather than the usual- male) makes for a subtle and nuanced read. You'll be surprised, informed, entertained and satisfied with the results. I found this to be one of my favorites at audible. A great book club book.

Better in time

I initially downloaded this book in June 2006 and remember enjoying it enormously. Lately I have been going back to re-listen to books that I remember enjoying. All told I have listened to Cage of Stars about 6 times. I love this book. There are so many themes and ideas that ring true for me. The idea that family is the most important thing in life and the true nature of forgiveness to name but two. Cage of Stars is truly a compelling and inspiring book. Much of my enjoyment comes from Jacquelyn Mitchard's words. However I can't imagine this book without Kathe Mazur's impeccable narration. A synergistic coupling if ever there was.
