Loved the story
The story was an unexpected delight. Very well written and nicely paced.
I was so surprised when it ended, I was really hoping to get some closure on some of the stories of the children.
I loved reading this book! I really enjoyed the details and stories of the people, and the ending for me was awesome. It wasn’t a typical happy ending: it left me thinking and impressed with the book and what I learned. I don’t think I’ll forget this one for a long time!
Wretchedly trite couldn’t wait to finish. Just not what I’d hoped for.
