Will the real Sandra Brown please start writing again, because whoever wrote this complete piece of trash has no talent. It violates the most basic "show don't tell" rules with totally inane statements like "she knew he was asking a rhetorical question and so didn't answer". The hero and herione are both completely unrealistic people with no flaws whatsoever. They're also the most well-educated and forward-thinking people the Depression era ever saw as regards mental illness and race. The end is about a nanosecond long, but conveniently resolves everything - almost as if the author herself couldn't even be bothered with it anymore. The narrator does what he can with this, but it's beyond redemption. Don't waste your money or your credit.
This was an amazing book. Great characters and story line. I didnt want to put it down. I would put this up there with Bridges of Madison County. This has been one of my top favorite books that Sandra Brown has written. I agree with one of the other posted reviews that this could/should be made into a movie.
I highly recommend this book. Sweet and tender - well thought out. Each bend in the trail of this book leads somewhere and just when you think you know where it's going - there's a surprise.
Maybe I would compare it to The Help. The characters are so vivid that you can paint a picture of them in your mind - well before it makes it to any screen. One knows the whole story of the lives of those even slightly mentioned. Some characters are sad,
THE BEST. His voice could lead me anywhere.
If you were lucky enough to have the time to read this all in one sitting - OH YES.
