Through the Door by Jodi McIsaac
Cedar's boyfriend Finn, the love of her life, disappears without a trace before she can tell him that she is pregnant. When their six year old daughter Eden begins opening doors to other places - like opening her bedroom door to Egypt, Cedar tries once again, with the help of a friend, to find Finn, who used to talk about magic as if it were real, to see if he knows what is going on with Eden. When she find's Finn's family, her mother, Maeve, freaks out and is full of hatred towards them. I thought that Maeve was too secretive and I did not like her character. It is an interesting Celtic magical story, but had loose ends, like Cedar's friend Jane, who we never hear about again once her role is filled and Cedar's job - do they try to contact her when she just disappears? The book is well written and edited, but the characters seem to lack depth. I got this book free to review from Netgalley.
