SO good, SO touching. MUCH better than the terrible movie.
Although she gets the accents mostly right (not easy to do, I admit), many, many, many times Ms. Stephens misreads the text (usually in conversations). Sometimes, mere confusion is caused by these misreads; sometimes the entire meaning of the comment is lost. This will really irritate anyone who knows how Southerners truly speak.
After finishing (and mostly enjoying) this novel, I realized that I don't think there is a single female character who is not raped or sold for sex in this book.
Much of the story details the sad life of a lady. I prefer action!
