This book did not seem very well organized and the story was not told in chronoligical order. It was as if someone was stringing together bits of histrorical facts from different sources. One chapter tells of the death of one of the women and in the next chapter it is related that she spent the Christmas season with the family in France. I give the narrator credit for for doing a good job with the material she had to work with. I don't know how I managed to listen to the entire book.
I agree with some of the other reviewers, this book is quite dull. I too had read the author's other book "Innocent Traitor". This book was as different from "Innocent Traitor" as night is from day. I rarely stop listening to a book but this time it was so tedious that I had to stop listening long before the end.
I liked this book and the story is engaging, however it seems like it is geared to the younger listner as the main characters are children.
Charles Frazier has a knack for telling a story. This fictional account of a period in our history that is not discussed in detail -- the period surrounding the removal of the Cherokee Nation from their homelands. Very interesting.
Will Patton is a wonderful narrator.
I really enjoyed this book. The attention to details made the characters come "alive". It was hard to stop listening to this book but at the same time I wanted to "draw" out the listening period so the book could be completely savored.
I thought the book was good overall. When it came time to finally reveal the secret of the last supper a word was revealed which I assume is latin. The dialog after the word was revealed did nothing to give the listener the meaning of the word. I was left very unsatisfied. I went back and re-listened to the word and ended up looking it up on google to find out what it meant. Once the secret was revealed, it was like the author couldn't end the story quick enough, so the ending felt rushed.
