This was a good book, albeit a bit old, to introduce you to Amish ways.

This book was OK - most of it is common sense.

Fast pace story, quick read, good story line. There are a couple of scenes that read as unrealistic, but all-in-all a good mystery.

Great read - Great story - I had a very hard time putting it down. The only "you've got to be kidding me" thought was when they made "something" intricate that actaully worked based from only an X-ray. Is that possible? Other than that, the story had me hooked from the frist chapter.

I absolutely love the Inspector Barnaby shows on A&E, so I thought I would give Caroline Graham's books a try. True to form, the culprit is kept hidden until the very end which makes for a very good read. My only criticism for this particular story is that too many of the characters have names so close to each other, that it was hard at first to keep them straight. Other than that, I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more.

It has been quite a while since I have read a book that left me craving for more - not that this story is incomplete, I just didn't want it to end. Although the story circles around death and dying, I found the author's words breathing life in every aspect she touched. Her style of writing was very soothing to me and while there was a mystery abounding, I was never scared.

I see the two main characters on a journey: Vita, coming to the end of her life, cleansing herself of the spirit she was and Margaret coming out of a self-imposed "death" stemming from the spirit she carried around and stepping into a new life.

I am making room on my favorite book shelf for this one nestled between Rebecca/Mrs.de Winter and Kane & Abel and a hop, skip and jump from Gone with the Wind, The Other Boleyn Girl, and The Widow of the South.

Book is identical to movie, so if you love the movie, you'll love the book. One of the best love stories. Quick and easy read.
