    i loved this book, but was left confused

    This book was a remarkable about lesley shelby. But, I was rather confused in the end scene with mustapha. Does she love him? Does he love her? Aside from that great book, great book!!!!!

    Unam Matshaya from South Africa

    As a young asiring novelist,this book,in my opinion was absolutely insparational and it kind of teaches a person how to live,love and accept life,together with its shortcomings,without regret nor spiteful demenour.So I strongly suggest that all the people who have not read shold rethink their decision and book or buy it.

    'One More River' is a great book

    I loved reading this book. It gave me such a great insight to what Jewish life is Israel is like. The book kept my interest through out the entire book. Also if you need a book to read for a book report it is a great read and is easy to do a project for. The main character Lesley was interesting in how she changed. The ending was great and there is a seqal. Lesley grew and faced the hardships of war and learned exactly what life had been for all the children there for their whole lives. I really enjoyed this book. I recommend this book to anyone. Buy it today!

    Just Read It for the Second Time

    I love historical fiction especially about my religion, Jewish. I recommend this book for anyone who likes historical fiction. Such in-depth descriptions are had to find these days. I commend Lyanne Reid Banks!
