Sometimes I just need a wholesome, feel good story set in a simpler time. This book was just that. A young boy who has survived a terrible life with an abusive father finds a lonely woman who needs someone to love and take care of. The boy's plight is heart-wrenching, but the majority of the book is filled with love and hope. Really enjoyed it, read it in a day.
I really enjoyed this story. Heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time.
Very good story. The only thing that took away from it for me was the almost consistently short sentences. This does make it very down-to-earth, and the shorter sentences might just fit the Southern environment (where I'm not from and have never lived, granted) and the character best, but the writing could have been "matured" just a tiny bit for me.
One of the most delightful books on CD I have ever listened to. The author's accent makes it so real that you feel you are actually in each scene. While it was a sweet story, it was not to sugary to believe. After reading/listening to this story, I have looked at people different from me, in a more gentle light.
