This won't make my top ten of all time list but it is definitely worth reading. The author does a beautiful job of describing some almost undefinable emotions for the little girl. Parts are hard to hear but so intriguing that I was riveted. I love how the story weaves back and forth between the two main characters. I didn't give it 5 stars because the story of the older girl (Avery) took on too much of a Hallmark/Jody Picoult, sappy, predictability that was not up to the quality or creativity of the other half. The narration by both readers was superb. I put it below the level of 'Crawdads' but above almost anything by Picoult. I hope you enjoy it.
Wonderful. The story line was so good, it was hard to stop.
I love the book ,very interesting from the beginning to the end.
Grey book and narration! Keep my interest the entire time.
Such a good book!! Keeps you intrigued and was based on real- life happenings. I never knew about thus place. It makes me wonder what happened to my brother - my mother was told he died- yet there was never a baby produced- she was put to sleep back then and when she woke up she was told that and was never allowed to see him...
Such a great story!! Heartbreaking and moving with a happy ending.
I am in the minority here but this book was very difficult to finish. Many parts dragged ridiculously long and it seemed the author was just filling pages. I quit the book 2 times but I hate not finishing what I start so I continued. I still don’t have a mental picture of what the characters look like even though I am 30 minutes from the end. I felt the author used too many metaphors. I guess it just wasn’t my style. I thought the narration was great though.
I loved this book!
