I loved this book because it happened to "real" people. I have read true stories where the people seemed to be saints and if you believe in God, everything will be easy. This is not one of those books. This family believed in God and did what they believed to be the right thing- but it was not the easy thing. They suffered real emotions... They were angry, they felt hatred and a variety of other human emotions that humans feel. They leaned on their faith in God to help them through, but it didn't make them less human. It is a wonderful book that will renew your faith in the human race.
Based n the characters I think this book was written for teens but I found myself drawn in and after the first book had to keep going. This is a series of three that should be read in order. The second book was my least favorite of the three. It seemed drawn out, but the characters and story line were important for book three. Overall I would recommend.
According to the book description this is about a mothers search for her child that she was forced to five up for adoption in the 50s, but that is not what the book is about. It is about the life of the son she gave up for adoption. The mothers search is briefly mentioned in the prologue. The story is about a young man coming to terms with his own sexuality, his feelings of abandonment and his efforts to try to find his mother. If this sounds interesting to you, than you will enjoy this book. The book is not bad, but it is not as described and had I known I probably would not have purchased.
This was an amazing story. I am an animal lover and never knew that elephants were so smart and have such a strong sense of family. I laughed and I cried and I know where I want to go when I get my passport.
The story follows the lives of several characters. None were overly remarkable and there was never a big reveal or climactic ending. The ending was kind of disappointment.
The story started off strong. Much of it was fairly predictable, but it was still good. However, the book should have ended several chapters before it did. It dragged on way past the point of a good ending.
If you have read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, you will enjoy this short story that brings closure to all of your favorite characters. If you have not read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, this will not make any sense.
The story had a good premise but with every chapter it got more nonsensical and the ending sucked.
The story was good but the story line was extremely similar to another book that I have read. I couldn't help but wonder which story was written first. Overall, the story kept your interest and was pretty good. I would recommend.
This was a fascinating story and also scary. This is something that can happen to anyone. I think about all the people that may be in mental institutions when they actually have a medical condition. The story was well written and keeps your interest while providing a lot of medical detail, but it is not over your head - it is understandable.
This is not an action packed drama with a lot of mystery, but it is a really good story. The narrator was perfect to portray the main character. It was interesting right from the start and kept my interest through the whole book. I hope this author comes out with more books.
