There are parts of this series of books that just broke my heart. To hear of the poverty and cruelty of this era and place, was sad as well as graphic. Sometimes you will need a strong stomach, because it is written by a nurse that saw and experienced many atypical things that we wouldn't come across much today. I love the writing and it was hard to see the book series end. All three books were so interesting and well-written. A group of stories that needed to be told.
Some areas of these stories are graphic and heartbreaking. Mostly because they are based on true experiences from a poverty stricken place and time. I loved the writing and narration, even through the difficult times. You will also experience the fortitude of those faced with unbelievable poverty and unique circumstances. Great series of books and love the show.
