Jen Segaloff Though Pauline was a real person, the author admits there is not much information on her. In this novel, she is the cause of several families' heartache. I feel a person such as Pauline must've existed to make the parts of the story we do not know fall into place. I know many people did not like the book, because they did not like Pauline... maybe there is a tiny sociopath in me, but I liked her. I'm wondering about other peoples' views on Pauline as a solution to the puzzle as well as a character personality.

Dawn Betts-Green I thought it was a fairly elegant way to tie up what had to be incredibly tangled and hard to decipher historical evidence. But then I worship at the temple of Sharyn McCrumb.
