it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2015

Wow! What an unexpected goodie this turned out to be? I loved it, it had me in tears in parts. There were so many parts to the story where I felt that I knew what was going to happen next but willing it not to. Just so tragic that I actually cried in places. This would make a fabulous made for TV drama. I read somewhere that the author had written books in the 80's then raised a family and has returned to writing. I think that the author is a superb writer of post war family sagas and hope she will publish another book soon as I would definitely be preordering it.

Teresa Jarvis Wow what a book, it was so sad, had me in tears so many times. It was a story but similar things did happen. This was on a par with the slaves in American, except it was children.

Deborh Rupp Really enjoyed the audio book. very heart wrenching but hard to put down ! Was narrated so well, it added to the story so much.
