This week the book that is still on my mind is...

As the future leader of her people, she must seek and hold fast to her inner warrior. But amid the horrors of the battlefield, Rain is startled and mystified by the first stirrings of mercy towards the enemy, men within her. What she encounters along the poignant and harrowing path toward her destiny a kind young man, a strange recurrent prophecy, and a condemned baby brother lead her, against odds, to forge mercy, love, and peace.
Why this is still on my mind?
I read this book when I was 14 (roughly 6 years ago), back then I never read a book and enjoyed it. The only time I read books was when it was required for a project. I don't know what made me pick up The Foretelling, but I am so glad I did. I was obsessed with this book, I read it in one day, and then read it again a few weeks later! I have read this book a total of about 5 times, and although if I re-read it now maybe it wouldn't be a favorite, it is Still on my Mind for being the one book that caught my attention when no books could. After reading The Foretelling I also read Alice Hoffman's book Green Angel, which I also ended up loving! I will have to re-read this soon and review it for you guys I think, I am curious to see if I still would like it as much (:
