The narrator’s sarcastic tone took away from the story and enjoyment. I don’t think this book fit the narrators tone.

When Carly Sears, a young woman widowed by the Vietnam War, receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970, and she is told nothing can be done to help her child. But her brother-in-law, a physicist with a mysterious past, tells her that perhaps there is a way to save her baby. What he suggests is something that will shatter every preconceived notion Carly has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage she never knew existed. Something that will mean an unimaginable leap of faith on Carly's part.

Great story, but this narrator does not have the correct sound for children. I grimaced every time she changed her voice to sound like one of the kids. She sounds great for the adult parts and basic narration, but should not take on a book with children's voices.

The main character was very ignorant and was pitiful. It would have been better if she had some strength of character

I enjoyed the story of the young Indian girl, but felt this book was missing something. Lacked enthusiasm.
