Excellent, powerful book. The second Charles Martin book I've read this year and I can't say enough good things about them. Strong characters, well developed plot a book of coming of age and facing your past. Excellent, can't wait to read more. Carol

I absolutely loved this book. It has a wonderful message about how love (even of only one person) can change your life and help make you who you are. I am a huge Charles Martin fan and this book does not disappoint. It is sometimes tough to see how things made this man who he is, but well worth the ride.

I gave this book full stars, but purely for the story.

The author has an almost poetic way of writing that can be beautiful, but repetitive. Sometimes is it difficult to discern which character is speaking... but I think he might have intended it that way. I came away feeling like the story was missing something, like maybe the author omitted something due to his publishers or ??? There is violence in the book. I feel like the author fixated on this a little too much. There is a feeling about the two protagonists that they could be interchanged, kind of like Fight Club, but in a mild Christian version. all in all, worth reading.

A well written book about a man who learns to cope with the memories of a unwilling "father", a mother he never knew, and a bother with mental illness. How he finds love in a long lost childhood playmate that steps back into his life bringing her own set of problems. The only mama he has ever know was "Mama" Ella, a man his father hired to care for him. Makes me wish we all had a Mama Ella, looking in on us.

My first read by Charles Martin.

After I read this book I immediately wish-listed all his other works. :)

Really enjoyed this book about a man's struggles with his childhood memories and his mentally unstable brother. Some parts were very funny. Writes beautifully and interesting plotlines.

I read this book for a book club and loved how it was written. It's a long book, and half way through it, i felt i knew these characters as my own... though predictable at times, the story is imaginative, redemptive and different than the ordinary.

Unforgettable characters and a sweet story. Charles Martin is one of the best writers of our time. He weaves together characters like a knitter making an afghan. Ghosts of the past brought together and put to rest through healing the heart.

This is the first book of Charles Martin's that I've read. He has a real God-given gift for writing. Fabulous story, characters, message. I will be reading all of his books.

"Tucker, I want to tell you a secret."
Miss Ella curled my hand into a fist and showed it to me.
"Life is a battle, but you can't fight is with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart."

This particular mass market version has the smallest type I've ever seen. Maybe I'm getting old??? Yes I wear bifocals but just take them off when reading. I've never felt uncomfortable with the size of the letters before. The book is fairly thin, it could easily have been made thicker with larger type. Were the publishers too cheap to use a few more pieces of paper? Also the book is made of some of the cheapest grey paper I've ever seen. I've never reviewed a book on the quality of the actual manufacturer but this one needs to be pointed out! I'm turning it in while it's still on a wish list. I might reorder the hardback, haven't decided. I have another book of his in my library that I will probably read first just to make sure I like the author. I'm going to take note of this publisher because I just might not like the quality of their books.
