Love this book. The content was disturbing but I could not put it down. A very sad time in history but a very good read.
What a treat to read such a well-crafted story. The writing is rich with imagery. At times it is gripping and suspenseful and at others poignant and poetic. Tragedy, suspense, insight and wisdom intertwine creating a complex and moving song that squeezes ones heart.
Could have been a good story, but to many wholes
What a wonderful find! This book is so engrossing I couldn’t put it down. The story is so compelling and well written. It is one of my favorite books of the summer. I didn’t know the story behind this novel and it just mind blowing what these kids and families went through and how it went on for so long with out the public knowing or caring. It is really heartbreaking. I highly recommend this novel, can’t stop thinking about it.
Excellent book. Loved the way the author wrote the story...easy to follow and the timelines flow seamlessly..hard to put down.
Wonderful book couldn’t put it down
This book will grab your heart and soul, pull you in, and will not let you go until the last word on the last page. And even then, it will linger. Cancel all appointments, turn off your phone, put out the do not disturb sign, have food and drink ready, and prepare for an incredible journey that will give heart-rending insight into the recent outrageous border family separations. Incredible!
Loved it! Great story, was surprised to read that it had some factual background. Well done!
So sad. I cried many times while reading this book. It’s hard to grasp that, although this book is fiction, there are many real stories connected to this book.
I don’t have a lot of time to read, so when I do, I don’t want to waste it on a so-so book. This was a good one to read on my short vacation. I couldn’t put it down!
