Unfortunately, this book was poorly bound and has one loose page.

I found this book a bit tough to read. The first half has many history lessons, and many different names and charecters. About half way through the book I started enjoying the action, rather than all the lessons. Once I got to "the story" I couldn't put it down! But it took a long time to get there.

Finding Anna is an excellent book. The history is good, despite it being fiction. I could feel the pain, smell the smoke from the burning town, and fell in love with the charecters. I decided to purchase more copies of this book and use it for my next book club meeting.

Homecoming is a book written for young adults reading level, but has such a good story that adults will enjoy it also.

It is about four children that are deserted by their mom and have to find their own way through towns and cities, trying to reach an aunt's house, where they think they will find shelter and safety.

The kids are resourceful and manage this trip with only about $12.00 in their pockets. They entertain themselves during many miles of walking and they try to operate with total integrity. While reading this book, I wanted to pick up the youngest child and hug him!

This book is a good reminder to us that when we help out someone in need, we have no idea what the long term benefits might be.
