Spanish translation

I decided to hear this book in Spanish. It is a wonderful translation. The novel was moving and historical. The contrast between those who hate and those who love is clearly defined and, since love wins, it gives us hope. Very creative. I highly recommend it.

Un cuento sumamente divertido

Me encanta el historia de la epoca cuando, en el estado de Carolina del Sur, el mundo estaba cambiando. Las mujeres negra, que forman un parte muy importante del tema del libro ayudan un ni?a blanca que habia perdido su madre. Recomiendo a toda que quieren saber mas de la vida en los sesentas en el sur de los estados unidos and como crecia la jovencita aceptar su vida triste con esperanza y la apoya de las mujeres en su casa nueva.
