Oh how I loved this book! It is the wonderful tale of a girl and her family and love and loss and learning to carry on. She is full of personality and spunk and courage. I laughed out loud and I sighed and I cheered her on. This book is beautifully told and filled with wonderful characters. If you aren't in the habit of reading young adult or youth fiction, this book would be a great place to start. I love this author and will definitely read more of his books.
I listened to this book while I was long arming some quilts and I loved it. I am not usually a 'romance' reader and this is not a typical 'romance' novel. I loved that it wasn't predictable and the main characters were all interesting and unique but still relatable. It was quick and easy and a good distraction when my brain seems unable to really get absorbed my much of anything. I highly recommend this for a quick and easy read that will leave you feeling hopeful.
Lisa See is one of my favorite authors, so when I saw this new book of hers was available on Audible, I purchased it immediately. It did not disappoint! I love historical fiction, strong female characters, intertwined relationships, and learning new things that I didn't know before. I got all of those in this book. The cultural roles and relationships were so fascinating to me as were the characters and their strategies for survival. While heartbreaking, this book was also inspiring and amazing. I highly recommend it!
This was a previous purchase from Book of the Month Club. I had heard mixed reviews about it but enough to make me curious. I'm not usually drawn to court room drama, but I like to venture out of my historical fiction rut from time to time. This story is told by multiple characters and it unfolds in a way that keeps you guessing until the end. I liked the book and enjoyed the pace of the story. I would recommend it.
While I mostly listened to books this month (while longarm quilting or sewing) it was just somehow easier than trying to focus on the print version. I'm not one to prefer listening over reading, but I am getting more fond of it and am glad it's an option. I still love turning the pages of an old fashioned print book though!
