It was a completely different story line than I'm used to (for an Amish story) and I loved it.
What I was sure of at the beginning, I wasn't so sure later on. I'm referring to which of the brothers Rhoda would choose.
I loved the fact that she was accepted completely in one community even though she was branded in another (both being Amish) and given a chance.
I loved the book.
This book is defiantly at the top of my list of "must read" books. It was shocking hearing about the human trafficking taking place in Nepal and the lies parents are told as their children are taken away. Life in Nepal is something I can't even imagine, however as Conor tells of his life among these people you feel as if you are right there.
Conor was definitely my favorite person. Of course you fall in love with each person, however the way Conner tells the story you can feel his hurts, his doubts, his discomfort, and joys just as if you were right there with him. I love the way he learns to love these children. His feelings when he first got there and then watching him grow and fit into these peoples lives. It is a truly beautiful yet hard story for life in Nepal.
Feeling! Conor brings feeling into the story. You can feel at first his doubts and then his love.
I loved this book. I was surprised to learn of the terrible things happening in the lives of people even today. This is a shocking yet wonderfully informative book of a man never expecting to fall in love with the people of Nepal. He was only going for a short time yet his life was drastically changed.
No, there was so much going back and forth if I wasn't paying close attention I was lost. However aside from "my poor attention span" it was pretty good.
I had hoped to hear more in her out-of-body experience, however it was a good listen.
Surprised and pleased.
No, once was enough. I did enjoy it the first time but I am not one to read the same book twice or listen to the same story twice. This was good but not that good.
