The characters are so richly portrayed that I fell in to the story at once. This is a novel of individuals, of relationships, of prejudice, of insight and of reflection, of wisdom and understanding.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, this is one of my favorite books this year, and I've hated having to wait until closer to publication to review it. On the other hand, I've had a difficult time trying to decide how to review this novel.
This quote does a good job of summarizing it for me:
"Her characters jump off the page and into the hearts of her audience
….charming, spiritual tale." — Library Journal
I don't think I can say it any better.
