Ann Patchett has had finer moments. Her main character is so closed that she is hard to understand, and i didn't connect as much to this as I have to her other books. "Run" is my all time favorite of hers!
I have really enjoyed listening to Ms. Markham's style of writing and Julie Harris does a fantastic job with accents and helps build the excitement of the book. It is a wonderful story of Africa and introduces you to many aspects you wouldn't have known.
This is a wonderful book that takes a small part of Jewish history and expands it into a full story. It feels similar to "The Red Violin" and is wonderfully written and told.
