I enjoyed this book very much. I love history and was not familiar with this Missouri/Kansas situation which foreshadowed the War Between the States.
The novel is written from Lidie's point of view. To me, this explains why some of the other characters were not as fully formed as other reviewers may have wanted them to be.
If you enjoy historical novels, give this one a try.
The assumption of the authors is that if you don't accept the Warren commission report as the final truth on the assassination, then you necessarily hold the Secret Service responsible. This is not the only possible position. The author initially referred to Oswald as the man suspected of doing it. Later in the book, the wording changed as if he had been convicted.
Eliminate some of the repetition of the daily duties of the guys and facts which had already been explained a few pages ago.
He mispronounced Caroline Kennedy's name almost every time he said it. He pronounced it "Carolyn" instead.
No, definitely not

I enjoyed this book. I like C.J. Critt as a narrator. You can pick up some of Ms. Kingsolver's themes, such as the importance of gardening and how cruel and hypocritical the world often is, in the book.
