I could not put this book away! I listened and listened I cried, laughed and yelled at many of the characters in this book. Despite the tragedies and there are many , I really loved the ending.
This story starts out with a bang, and never slows down until the very end. It isn't one of Stephen Kings scary creepy novels. I liked it because it is about good and evil.
Great mob story with all the trimmings! Shooting, money, sex, wives, mahem it will definitely take you away from your everyday suburban surroundings
I loved this story! A time in America where racial strife and prejudice were a daily problem. I personally remember watching the race riots from my porch as a little girl. The family in this book is tragic, and most of the people in it are, but there are many sweet endearing moments. I know it will bring back memories for everyone. If you love Irish people and their stories you will love this!
This book had some really fun and crazy interesting character. I loved the plot. the would be murderer was a terrific character. the ending wasn't unusual, but the story as a whole was.
I really enjoyed this story and how it was told. It unfolded slowly, but there really wasn't a dull moment. the characters were well developed. I especially enjoyed Lee. I really enjoyed the telling of the story from the French arena of WWII.
As usual James Burke delivers a fantastic story woven throughout Louisiana. There is mystery drugs cops and plenty of picturesque bayou storyline.
This is the story you are looking for! There is plenty of intrigue, mystery, plot excitement and romance. I truly loved every minute of this amazing story of 3 generations of strong loveable and courageous women.
Oh my gosh! do you want to know something about the people and country of India? this is the book for you. I loved the main character, and I loved how he dealt with all of his problems and situations. I particularly enjoyed the ending. If you are a follower, and read my reviews I like to tell about the endings. If I don't like the ending I will give a story many less stars, because I find that after spending many hours listening to a story, it can all be ruined by the ending. With this one you will not be disappointed!
This book goes on and on about the lives of the refugees from Uganda. It was good when talking about the conflict and what happened to the people, but after coming to america, I found it very whiny and lost interest. I did not finish reading this book.
I cannot praise this book enough! It was a page turner for me. Following the life of the daughter of an american madam. It was entertaining, gut wrenching, sad, and joyful, and an eye opening experience. I highly recommend this book.
