Review: The Whole World OverUser Review - Noelle - Goodreads
I really enjoy how Julia Glass tells a story - The Three Junes hooked me on her writing. I found her characters in The Whole World believable as were their problems. It's not a quick read, but enjoyed the journey. I went right to library to get another of her books. Read full review
