The writer takes creative license with the lives of her ancestors and tells their story from the point of view of a 13-year-old girl. Names and dates are stated with emphasis, but why? It adds nothing to the story. And the story is this.....her mother was sent to live with a foster family when her grandmother was comitted to a mental hospital. She tried getting her back twice but failed and no one knows why. The End. And yes the author actually writes "The End" as the last two words of the story. Should I care? Probably but the author makes no effort to make the reader care. This story is probably quite entertaining to the author's family and friends, but to anyone else it's not important.

This book is one of the best true story books I've read in a long time.. A true family's tragic story that has a good ending. True, the family's secrets are revealed but what a great ending. Great read for life in the 1900s and how people coped with the hard farm life and tragedies. The author brings the characters of this family alive in your heart and does an awesome job doing it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
