User Review  - Tori - Goodreads

This was such a great story, but the writing was really disappointing. The descriptive passages went on and on, the dialogue was awkward, several of Mary Ingles's emotional reactions were head ... Read full review

User Review  - Anna Murdock - Goodreads

I didn't really know to rate this book. It is a true story, which made it interesting, and I didn't want to put it down because I wanted to find our what happens, but it was really gruesome, and awful at the same time. I don't think I would read it again now, knowing what it is like. Read full review

This book was clearly written by a man, who is trying to sound like a woman. I think Thom fails miserably at getting inside a woman's head. The character is very admirable and full of remarkable courage, but this is a painful read. Read full review

To be more honest, I skimmed parts of this book. I just couldn't get into it, but that's probably because I struggle with the idea of families being torn apart. I guess I just didn't feel up to ... Read full review
