Wow……..second good book in a row. If you follow my book reviews you know it’s been a while since I’ve found something great and yet this is my second great book review in a row. Yeeeessssss
This book…….this author………yes. I was transported from my bed, on a work day, falling asleep while reading; to a Chicago neighborhood; up and coming boxer. Young; picked from the crops; wife. Baby after baby.
The book was so vivid I felt her pain and understood her plight in life. The twists and turns were amazing.
There were times when I was begging for more detail. Like when she came home from the hospital the first time. How’d she get those lights back on?? I wanted the main character, Pecan, to show us more. How did she get home? I guess I wanted to see more resileience
While I think the author could have been more graphic, I think the author was “real” and I want to read more from her!
I think she could even develop more books using the older children in this book as the main character.
