Am I the only one who thinks this book only scratched the surface? I kept expecting it to develop into a murder mystery.
I really loved this book. I could not put it down.I love the authors use of imagery and words that enable the reader to visualize the places and actually "step into" them.I think she touches a part of all of us when she delves into the dynamics of relationships among family members, friends, and others who touch the perimeter of our lives. She says,"Childhood is never over,not really."
I also like this quote"...the places we come from don't leave us as easily as we leave them." Does anyone have any comments to share about this book?
I liked this book. It was a nice, easy read with an interesting story. One question though; Where did the mom disappear to in the end?!
really, where did lots of people disappear to in the end? I liked the book but there were a lost of loose ends.
I absolutely loved this book. I was drawn in from the first paragraph. I could very easily picture the farm and the characters, and I love the themes of love and loss and growing up. I would really love to see this story in film version.
