Read in August, 2009

It will sound corny, but I have to say again how much I love Karen Cushman. She keeps getting better with every book I read and Rodzina is no exception. From the first paragraph I was hooked, and all I can say is wow. I literally could not put the book down and finished it in four hours. The characters are so interesting and they build as the story continues, taking on new layers with each stop of the train. Though the ending is a bit predictable, it really doesn't become so until the last few chapters and even Rodzina keeps you guessing. You think you know what is going on, but not until the last moment do you find out your right. This is great fare for anyone traveling, going somewhere new, leaving family, dealing with death, or just in need of roughly four hours of escape in the Western expanses of America in the 1880's.
