"Like a river glorious, is God's perfect peace.
Over all victorious, in its bright increase...."

I was really pleased with where Carson went with Leah's story, and oh that ending!!! My love for Jeff just grew and grew. There were times when he was really the only bright spot in bleak times. I thought Carson really turned up the magic, and I loved seeing Leah grow into her power. There were many difficult things I had to witness, but in the end Leah was surrounded by her "people", her family, who kept things hopeful.
I thought the magic would save us all. But it turns out, all the magic in the world is rubbish compared to good people who take care of their own.
