Froi of the Exiles - Melina Marchetta Froi of the Exiles is not a story I would describe as a walk in the breeze because this is a story full of heartbreak and suffering. It talks about pain that grips your heart so tightly, it would be a relief to separate the heart from the body for a moment or two. It was so freaking intense, I had to force myself to take some break in between.

It also elaborates on sacrifices people of Charyn and Lumatere alike would do. Again, I read it with the heaviness of the heart, knowing fully that their journey for peace and stabilized countries is far from finish.

My whole journey had been nothing but pain. On the contrary of the popular reaction, I welcome pain most graciously because I deem every pain would be worth it when happiness arrives. And I can't wait for that.
