    " I read this book in two days. Alot of times you picck up on the foreshadowing and you expect certain things to happen, but this book had suprises. Eleanor reminded me so much of my own grandmother it was unbelievable. I feel like I truly learned some things from the characters and story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorri | 9/7/2013

    " Another great book! Given to me by my Aunt. A wonderful (though very sad and emotional at times) story about forgiveness and sin. Makes you look at sin in another way.. sin is sin.. whether shoplifing or murder... hmmmm... something to contemplate for sure! A very good read and a very good ending. "
