The story itself is sad, heartbreaking, and good...I've heard it was based on a true story as well. But the way the characters' emotions are portrayed drove me nuts and that's why the book is getting such a low rating. The emotions are all over the map, sounding like a rant of "oh he's a monster...I love him though...he's such a monster, I'll never love him again...oh I love him anyway." Guh. And I understand faith was hard in the days of persecution, not easy like we have it now...but the up and down responses of Valeria were tiring, and the assurances of her mother were usually more annoing than uplifting. I couldn't really feel either one of them as being a real person, so the whole thing just felt fake.
