it was amazing

I don't understand how anyone who reads this book could give it less than 5 stars, but I'm just saying.... also, any words that I try to string together here will not do this novel the justice it deserves, or my just-now-finishing-it, is too soon to find the right words to express the depth of my emotions, all raw with the horror of Katrina and the beauty of Life. Esch, Skeeter, China, Randall, Junior, Daddy and Big Henry, I don't think I will ever forget you.

Marianne Haddad This book is tough to read, but I must say I am in awe of Ms. Ward's ability to use language to evoke such strong feelings from her readers.... Another writer I find myself in awe of !! There are sentences here that call to mind another admired author, Zora Neale Hurston...
