A very compelling book! The life lessons contained really give you perspective on your own life. All of the stuggles that the main character goes through leave you deep in thought as to what god really has in mind when you descend this earth. It shows that the light at the end of the tunnel may not always be what you expect, but it's what you need to continue to go on. I highly recommend this book. It's a great read that you don't want to put down.

Mega-Depressing Oprah Pick Not Worth the Effort

After the final disgusting scene in the first chapter I knew I shouldn't waste my time on this all too self-possessed effort to depress and wear on the reader. I've always been leary of 'Oprah Picks' but this one takes the prize. Do the editors at Oprah's show pick such bad novels on purpose? From the death of her little brother from worms (which is unneccesarily graphically portrayed) to her struggles against her strange husband (whose character annoyingly is never really explained or developed thoroughly by the author), the protangonist, a young woman in her late teens named Julie, is slapped hard incessantly by her circumstances. I just wanted a break from it. Although it was an easy read (day and a half, thankfully no longer) I found myself wishing that the protangonist would just go home to her mama and forget about Gap Creek. She and her bizarre husband eventually do, but it's too late to save the effort. Try a different novel. Don't waste your time on this one.

    VERY GOOD STORY...

    But perhaps it isn't for everyone...very few books are. I was particularly enthralled with the consistent style and dialect of the characters. Sad? Yes. Insightful? Definitely. Depressing? Only if you miss the message of struggle and hope.

    Music in Words

    A beautiful and poetic story. The words seem to flow like music. A stunning experience.

    Wonderful Read... Take the Time

    I never seem capable of finding the time to read a book...at least until I got my hands on this one! I couldn't stop reading it! Great plot and detail. I felt like I was back in time and living their story.

    LOVED IT

    I loved this book!! I could not put it down and was very disapointed when it was over. I can't wait to read more books from Morgan - an excellent author.

    The best book ever.....

    This was one of the best books I have ever read, it really caught my heart. I am on here praying for a follow up of this book I never wanted it to end. I recommend this book, I read it in one day, before my husband could even get home from work, I just couldn't put it down.

    Just Wow...

    This book was so good that it crept into my dreams at night. I didn't want it to end. This book is full of memorable characters who get into all sorts of terrible and wonderful situations. It will make you laugh and cry. I highly recommend this book.

    Bravo!

    From the first page I could not put this book down. I fell asleep reading. I became Julie. I felt her grief, her pain, her exhaustion and her passion. I need a sequal to this story of a marriage. It was wonderful.

    A great book...

    For those who like to read history, this is for you... I say history because it is something I can directly relate to... these things really happened.. I felt for these people and their circumstances... real life..
