Beautifully written and very compelling, this book reads more like fiction. In my reading, I often make a note of a great turn of phrase or clever use of words that makes a point so well that there's no way it could be misconstrued. It normally happens once or twice to me in a book, but in this book I stopped counting after it got into double digits. After everyone I'd say to myself jealously, "I wish I had I written that sentence!"
This family's strength and dignity in the face of unimaginable circumstances affected me profoundly.
