    "TMoore - Denver Colorado"

    This book keep me wanting more. I couldn't wait until my walk the next day to listen. A great book about mother and daughers and running out of time.

    "A very interesting story"

    After listening to this book, twice I found it to be extremely interesting and enlightening. Miriam learns that life can be very lonely, even more so when you hardly know the ones that you love. The audio book is better than reading the paperback.

    "Expecting more...."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The reader was fine, the book was trite. It took serious racial, social, economic and political issues and made them into something less than soap opera. I expected much more. I also expected prose that was closer to poetic than pedantic...
