Very interesting story. It is refreshing to know that someone from that time period had the ability to speak her mind and not be stopped from doing such by her husband. The fact that Abigail's parents encouraged the girls to learn and read is wonderful.
My husband read this first and suggested it to me. It is amazing that Mr Junger's family had interaction with the Boston Strangler. That would really freak me out! Mr Junger is a wonderful writer- I have read his book War and seen Restrepo (my son was there with the Army and was wounded there). I will read anything that Mr Junger writes or watch anything he produces for TV.
A very interesting, moving book. My mother in law grew up in France during WWII and had relatives in the camps. Reading these stories really brings into focus how hard all of this was. I would recommend it to anyone.
I have always liked Stephen King, but have found that his stuff is either really good or really bad. There does not seem to be any in between. Gerald's Game was one of the good ones. I think it was one of his earlier books, because it shows some good imagination. I liked it.
I love Jonathan Kellerman's novels. I love Faye Kellerman's novels. I have read one of Jesse Kellerman's novels and did not think much of it. This book I hated. I did not even finish it. The murder/ cop side of it (at least through the two chapters that I read) was okay, but the other worldly stuff made no sense to me. To me, this book could not decide what it wanted to be, and so failed to do either in my eyes. Very disappointed.
