Loved the book - story was interesting, characters well-written. Hearing the voices of the characters was what made this book a riveting "read."
This book exceeded my expectations. Beautifully written about sad parts of this country's untold stories. Our history books leave too much out of the top-often revisionary texts.
I kinda had an idea of what this story would be lien, but was blessed by the way it brought me into the reality of those orphaned. The narrator was pleasing to the ear and did a good job.
This emotionally engaging story brings history to life and illustrates how experiences of past generations are relevant today. The narrator did more than just read the story - she acted it. Outstanding performance!
I fell in love with this novel almost immediately and could not put it away. It was so beautifully written, there were times I would choke up, out in public and had to control my emotions not to cry. The story was so detailed, the characters were so richly described and alive, I was pulled in so intensely, I'd forget I was reading and just experience the story. I can't wait to read the next novel by this author!
I've had this book in my wish list for ages. It kept getting great reviews but I wasn't so sure I would like i . Well, glad I finally got iit BECAUSE I LOVED IT. A really great story for young and old. Listened to it all in one day. Couldn't seem to make myself stop.
I loved this book, although there were times I wished I wasn't driving while reading, it is hard to see through tears.
There is one pretty graphic scene which would stop me from recommending this book to some people, but otherwise the book was wonderful.
What a gripping story, I cried and I laughed. The story is well written, the characters beautifully build. It clearly is a story written from the bottom of the heart. The narration is fantastic and heartfelt, believable. I listened to it in the car while driving to work or home and it was always difficult to leave my car at my destination. You must read this book!
