MG Takes On Thursday - Sky Song

Greetings and salutations,

It's been a while since I've got involved with other people's tags, but the lovely Mary over at Book Craic came up with a really nice one called #MGTakesOnThursday. You can find out all about it here.

It's a beautiful story about love and friendship and overcoming evil together.
