My mother had read this book and recommended it to me and to my daughter, also. I really enjoyed listening to the authors read. I heard the drawl of their accents and the inflections of the creators of these words.
Thanks to Sue and Ann for your honesty and vulnerability.
This is Sue Monk Kidd's best book yet. A great fictional portrayal of real historical people. I could feel the pain of slavery and the predicament of a woman's role in 1800s society. Yet, there is always triumph. This story branches out into my life with knowledge that I too can make a difference, one fellow human being at a time.
Loved the narrators voices. They brought the characters to full life.
Father Tim is full of scripture and it's concrete, where-you-live, application. It opens as a sleepy little tale of Father Time ministering in a small mountain village, and then life takes over and life is never totally sweet or simple - so neither is this tale.
Loved the readers, with the accents and twang of the south, and conviction of the times. I surely do hope we, as Americans have come far, far, from the bad attitudes described in this book...and closer and closer to the generous, loving, and BRAVE spirit of the best attitudes in this book.
I was about 12 years old, but living in the West at the time of these events... but I do remember the death of Medgar Evers because as my Daddy read from the article that was published in LOOK magazine and he wept. I will never forget. A MUST read.
