Only the most peculiar, heartfelt fate could link the star-crossed Ricconni family of New York with the dirt-poor Powells of the Georgia mountains. Little do Ursula Powell and Quentin Ricconni know that a strange and abstract iron sculpture of a Bear will draw them together. They have nothing in common except the power that the sculpture has in both their lives.Commissioned from a then-struggling artist named Richard Ricconni, the sculpture, which now sits in the back yard of a secluded mountain farm, is worth a fortune. When Quentin leaves New York for the small Southern town to reclaim his father's sculpture, he discovers that when it comes to the heart, to destiny, and to fate, the price paid cannot be measured in millions.A page-turning, tear-jerking, and lyrical Southern love story about what happens when two worlds meet.

This is an interesting story told well, but inconsistencies in voice and narration detracted from the overall reading experience.

Good story. It would have been better had I not known the information about the ending given in the prologue. I found this distracting as I read.
