My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I struggled to get into this book last year when I picked it up as an audiobook. This year, as an ebook, I struggled to put it down. Each chapter was harder than the prior, making you wonder how the next could possibly get worse. Yet, somehow they did. The way Ruth Wariner told her story had you there fully, experiencing each awful moment along with her, feeling her pain. I cannot put into words the amount of relief brought on by the final chapters, as this family finally had a reprieve. This was storytelling at its best.
