This book was outstanding and heartfelt. I fought back tears reading this book. There were emotions of sorrow and rage while reading about a community's response to a tragedy.

“I get angry about things, then go on and work.” —Toni Morrison

This explains my feelings after finishing this book. It was weighing so heavy on my heart that I decided to write about some of the messages that Mr. French is talking about within this novel. It caused me to examine our reaction to tragedy today. Often there is too much talk and not enough action.
