The QL books by Ashley McConnell are all fairly good, but this one was considerably better than that. While the way it deals with child abuse is not new or unique, it feels emotionally true on multiple levels, and looks at some causes/triggers, as well as generational issues. This is what QL was at its best: small changes with great potential impact; ripples that started a process but left it to the real people to make it a reality.
Any fan of Quantum Leap should like this book. A dark and moving tale, taken back to the early days of the Berlin Wall, where Sam has to live out the life of a little girl suffering at the hands of an abusive parent. Chilling and thrilling, it reminded me of a favoured episode of the series in it's grim subject matter. Not much of a comedy peice if you're looking for it, but if you enjoy the more serious side of the series, I'd recommend this book.
One of the darker Quantum Leap novels, this explores child abuse as Sam finds himself in the body of a six year old girl. A nice touch was having the reactions of the little girl as she finds herself in the body of a middle aged man!
