Excellent tale with present day mixed with Irish myth

Through the Door (The Thin Veil, #1)Through the Door by Jodi McIsaac
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, so it took me two tries to really get into this book, but then I reached the point where this book was the first thing I picked up when I got home from work. It was that good.

Cedar had a great love, Finn, who disappeared on her on the night before she planned to tell him that she was pregnant with his child. Now seven years later, she is shocked to find that her daughter Eden can open doors to different worlds and times - as long as she can picture it in her mind. Searching for answers, she goes to see Finn's parents. Then Eden disappears. The search across continents begins for Cedar and a giant host of characters, including Finn who reappears during the crisis. Mythical beings from the Tuatha de Danann enter the story and all manner of mayhem and mystery begin.

This tale was written in third person, mostly from the viewpoint of Cedar. Some found her a bit weepy, but that was appropriate since her daughter disappeared. Still, she was so weepy as to destroy the character or the story.

This was a fabulous tale and I was thrilled to see that it is actually the first book in a series. I'm eagerly anticipating reading the other two books.
