An interesting story that, while a little difficult to follow, manages to tie its self up cleverly. So clever, it seems, that this author knows a little more about the world than she's letting on.

overall Great read. A little hard to follow. Each chapter follows a different character so you have to try and keep track. They are WONDERFUL characters though. A great storyline. Keeps you turning the pages. After reading this book you will spend a lot of time thinking about your TALENTS. Content good for young or old.

"A puzzle-style story told from multiple viewpoints is set in a slightly magical world where everyone has a Talent and follows the experiences of 11-year-old orphan baker Cady, who embarks on a journey that leads her to a mysterious house, an old recipe, a family of Talent-seeking children and a Talent Thief who changes her life forever."

Told in multiple viewpoints, A Tangle of Knots is a magnificent puzzle. In a slightly magical world where everyone has a Talent, eleven-year-old Cady is an orphan with a phenomenal Talent for cake baking. But little does she know that fate has set her on a journey from the moment she was born. And her destiny leads her to a mysterious address that houses a lost luggage emporium, an old recipe, a family of children searching for their own Talents, and a Talent Thief who will alter her life forever. However, these encounters hold the key to Cady's past and how she became an orphan. If she's lucky, fate may reunite her with her long-lost parent.
