    Story
    (418)

    A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the trials of one unforgettable family, Ayana Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of love and bitterness and the promise of a new America. In 1923, 15-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented.

    Would you listen to The Twelve Tribes of Hattie (Oprah's Book Club 2.0) again? Why?

    yes, at parts I did not want to stop listening


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I could almost visualize the character speaking as the narrator was reading, the narrator was that good.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie (Oprah's Book Club 2.0) and why?

    Hattie, of course!


    Any additional comments?

    did not like the way it ended...an abrupt end...but then, maybe I did not want it to end!

    Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a 10 year-old girl, is arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.

    Benson says: "Important subject and plot, pedestrian execution"
    "great start, slow finish"

    Story
    Would you listen to Sarah's Key again? Why?

    probably not, story was captivating at first and then waned and was very predictable toward the end


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tatiana de Rosnay? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Have you listened to any of Polly Stone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you could take any character from Sarah's Key out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Sarah, I think her story would be captivating
