LOVE ITTT!!!

Wow - you know when you're searched and read the first two chapters of every dam book for the past 2 months looking for something that will really hold you. Well, oh my goodness... if I knew about this book before, I would not have wasted so much time reading all those other fake books. This author is going to become very huge. This book is going to become a movie. I dare hollywood to leave this behind. When you start reading this book, you are going to need to go slowly because it's her first book and you wont want it to end because you dont know when the next one is coming out. yet, how can you read slowly when you have no control over the rate at which you're being sucked in. Ok. I'm not telling you anything else. Read THE BOOOKKK!

This novel wasn't bad, but it wasn't very enjoyable, either. The writing wasn't very advanced, and the characters weren't believable. The six different perspectives, too, were irritating, in that there were so few chapters in each one's viewpoint, being so spread out besides, that one couldn't really get the feel for any of the characters; if one desired to tell a story through six different perspectives, I think that the author should have greater than 324 pages in telling it. Pappy, one of the main characters (though not having an actual voice in this novel), seemed unreal in character, his actions never really being justified, the main purpose of them being, at least indicated, anyway, that he was just plain evil, no reason for it. The plot, too, was rather messy in execution; the beginning having too little, being a couple hundred pages or greater all about farm life, while the eventful portion only took little less than a hundred pages, seeming crammed and rushed, in that, when disaster struck, you didn't really feel any personal connection with the characters.

A decent read, not horrible, by any means, but not a real memorable, "wow" kind of read.

    Easy read

    Quick read. This was a small segment of this gals life and the drudgery of living on a farm (her husband's dream). Her desires for a better life, but still loving the man that she married.

    Well written but not for me.

    A good book a good story but i hated it. It is captivating and depressing. Set in segregated Mississippi at the end of WW2, two families dealing with trials and racism.
