Good book-- if you're sensitive the racism can be disturbing. My friend is black and said she couldn't continue with it. Personally, nothing stops me from finishing a book, and if you look beyond what is really only an attempt to portray the real atmosphere of general ignorance in the early 1900s in the South, you find a touching story.

This is a beautiful story about dealing with a handicapped child. Lott touches on all the areas of a families life that are affected with the birth of a handicapped child. He also makes the reader aware of what a blessing these children are to all who are lucky enough to know them. It will make you cry, it will make you laugh. I recommend this book to everyone.
