Loved this book! I had never heard of it before and heard that it was a friend's favorite. When I started it I didn't know the storyline or the content. The story was compelling and kept me wondering where it was headed throughout the entire book. It reminded me a bit of the book To Kill a Mockingbird, one of my all time favorites. I hesitate to write that, but I couldn't help but draw certain parallels between the two books. I would love to hear your thoughts on that comparison if you have read it or end up reading it. I actually checked out another book by this same author but didn't get a chance to read it. I definitely want to read more from him. So I'm giving a glowing recommendation to this book. Read it! I think you just may like it.
