You have to be on the mood to listen to this book. If you are driving, you might get confused at the beginning with all the details. I guess it needs someone patient.
This book is a MUST READ for all women of all ages! I has adventure, romance, and Food! :)
The author's tone of voice help you visualize the scenery and the details of the story!
Although there were parts I lost patience listening to pollyana being TOO GOOD, I love the fact that it is so well described that made me feel as I was living the story caring for Pollyana and her loved ones :)
Read it for your Kids or listen for your entertainment :)
I could not listen more than one CD from this book. It is not interesting at all!
I am a fan of memoirs and especially of female authors. Her story is very sad as many other stories of survivors of the Holocaust. She talks about her experience of the Holocaust from overseas and what she found in her country after returning from England.
Vera portrays magically the beauty of the details and imagery from her childhood and at times, you feel like you are listening to a long poem.
I highly recommend you to buy it but you should keep tissues near you during the last chapter.
I loved the way the story is narrated. The author makes sure she does not sound biased by telling you both sides of the story and by reasoning and understanding what takes a person or a community to x or y act. I love the idea of telling a few secrets from the church to us outsiders. I believe this religion is too old fashion by hiding secrets about rituals, censuring, threatening, and by stubbornly not accepting facts found by scientists.
I could not believe that in America, there are those who live a life similar to the Muslim community in the Middle East.
Kudos and thank you to the author!
