Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Most good authors can write a good story. Let's face it, none of us like to read 'so much' that we read for the sake of reading. Margaret knows her characters. It is like you can be with them, and feel what they feel when you read 'Margaret's story telling'. Mattie is the story of a young women's life, at a different time than now. So, I guess it is a period piece. It is real, and ultimately uplifting in it's honesty.
