it was amazing

Through the voice of an 11-year-old girl, the author has managed to draw readers into an era characterized by some very adult realities. Prejudice, poverty and a desire to escape through music are all vividly portrayed in this third novel in the Pearl Spence series. Finkbeiner's delicate handling of sensitive issues surrounding life in the 1930s do not leave adult readers lacking in a full appreciation of a formative time in our nation's history. Even those not interested in history will be drawn into this fictional account of a family's struggle to overcome loss and heartache. Once you read A Song of Home, you'll want to go back to the beginning of Pearl's journey with A Cup of Dust and A Trail of Crumbs. Highly recommended!
