This book is now in my top ten of all time favorites! This should be required reading.
Uncle Willie, Of course. The Willie-isms : )
You would totally miss the realistic south Georgia accent. Great job with that even if he mispronounced 'muscadine' and 'Sapelo'.
I was amazed at how easily this story unfolded, but was held captive by so much of the accurate description of the marshland. I fell in love with the coastal islands of Georgia about the same time as this book was being written, and hope to retire there soon.
This story was only somewhat predictable, but unfolded in the most beautiful way.
Steady was my favorite.
The great exchange. .. ..I believe he referred to puzzle pieces on one occasion and baggage on separate occasion, but the meaning was not missed.
I would like to compare the subtle threads of grace weaved throughout this story to those that each of us are given on a daily basis.
The volume was not consistent and I had to continually adjust my head phones manually.
I would recommend it to others.
Definitely edgy with several unexpected twist and turns. Depth of characters were rich as was character development.
Good use of multiple readers.
I have already recommended this book to several friends!
I would compare this book to the lives of so many of my friends an family members. Truly relatable.
Girl, get your life!
Phylicia Rashad's voice is undeniable. I would love to see her in this role when this book is made into a movie.
I am a fan of descriptive writing. The author did not disappoint.
The accent did not fit the time period of the character. Too soft... Too gentile.
Very slow start.... Far too many unnecessary characters, but still intriguing until the end. Did I miss the epilogue?
