it was amazing

It was hard for me to read this book. I understand the author's use of magic realism and clairvoyance to make the story poignant and haunting and ultimately, redeeming but even without these elements (which were very beautifully woven into the story), this book made me cry. I even had to put it down every once in a while. I can't begin to imagine how it feels to have a spouse, a daughter or son or any one close taken from you and know that they were being held against thier will, being tortured or even killed. The uncertainty can make anyone go crazy and I admire all those left behind for their unwavering faith and hope.
