I was going to post this book when I first joined PBS but after realizing that I hadn't read it, I decided to do so. Ordinarily it is not the kind of book I'd be interested in....but as I started it, I became fascinated with the story and the characters. I'm glad I didn't pass up the chance to read this. Great story....great storyteller.
