's review

really liked it
bookshelves: 2014, usa

Loved it from page 1

Slow paced and really descriptive but I loved it.

I really enjoyed learning about life back then for the Nolans
Highs and lows of life and daily experience

I was so emotionally attached to Francie. She was a brillant character and I loved her to pieces
