This one surprised me. I picked it up as a free book on Kindle because I liked the name of the book. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I have to say this book was totally different than anything I expected.
From the first words until the ending chapter I literally could not put the book down. I stayed up until midnight to finish the book. From the first words..”I was barely thirteen” to the ending I was caught up in the world created by Bette Lee Crosby.
I found her main character to be a very interesting lady. The book goes back and forth between current events and past history and I enjoyed both story lines, as reading one helped me to know the character better.
The only part I found a little strange was that the story is told by the main character …even after her death, she continue to tell the story.
I don't normally like stories that are “told” or Narrated instead of allowing the reading to experience the action as it goes along, but in this case, I think it works.
