This is a hard book for me to rate. It is well written but Georgia Tann is a truly evil person and that makes it uncomfortable to read. She was very publicly praised for helping the poor orphans while using the poor and not just orphaned children to make money and connections for herself. Fascinating and sad. Not something I am ever likely to re-read.

I could not get into this book, found it hard to hold my attention. If it would of started out more on what happened with the children and then her life might of been better. I just didn't care for this book.
