This book offers a very different perspective on our legal system. It is much more about the system than about the man who is rightly/wrongly sentenced to death row. It was captivating and I recommend it highly.
The main character was a very capable young woman who had suffered mental and emotional damage on a previous police case. She took on this case at great personal risk to her safety and mental health. I enjoyed the premise of a "look alike". I also enjoyed the premise of the college students who became house mates and friends. The book was well written and the narrator did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend this book and this narrator. The book was very long, but it held my interest until the very end.
This book was wonderful - beginning to end. It is a great listen. The narrators did a terrific job. I enjoyed it so much that I listened to it twice! The historical aspects of the period made the book very interesting. I had no idea how circus's came to perform in towns across the country or what it took to make that happen. This book is about the personal relationships in the complex higherarchy of the circus world. The love story was not the over riding theme, infact it did not surface until 1/2 way through the story, but it made me more vested in the main characters. I highly recommend this book.
This was an amazing book. I listend to it twice. It took me back to 1963 when I was a teen and oblivous to racial issues. This book brings out so many of those issues by wrapping them in a story about a young southern socialite who is beginning to see her friends and their "help" in a different light. The pace of the book is just right. The narators are marvelous. I absolutely loved this book.
