it was amazing
Read from June 22 to 25, 2012

Amazing! It was one of those books that you hate to end.

"The Forgetting River" has something for everyone. I originally picked up this book because of the genealogical aspect, but found that it is so much more! The descriptions of Arcos de la Frontera are wonderful and when I went to the Internet and looked at the images of this medieval city it was just as Caravajel had written. This book is a beautifully written memoir and encompasses all aspects of the author's incredible search for her family's roots. Sounds, sights, food, arts, and culture are wonderfully depicted and
as a reader, I simply delighted in the journey!

I will definitely keep this book on my shelves. I just know that I will pick it up and read it again someday.
