    1. This book was my book club's selection for October. I was a bit nervous to start it since the author was attending our meeting to discuss the book with us. What if I didn't like it? I had nothing to worry about though as it was a really good book that drew me in from the beginning.

    3. I really wanted to like this book. It had so much potential. For me, the storytelling never quite gelled in a compelling way and the "big reveals" fell a bit flat. Perhaps the writing style appeals to some readers, but I just never quite connected with the characters, and felt like the ending was sudden and too rushed to be realistic. Plus The typos drove me nuts!Sweet story, just wish it had been told differently.


    4. Linda Loveland Read paints a rich portrait of a woman in search of herself. An excellent reminder of how bigotry and hate cast long shadows. Five stars, I couldn’t put it down.
