It was interesting enough and had some funny parts, but overall it wasn't what I hoped it would be. I don't think I will be reading this book again.

RadioladyToronto, OntarioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5August 1, 2011RadioladyToronto, OntarioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I first started reading this book, I found the Welsh language and some terms hard to understand. But as I became more comfortable with the manner of speaking, the story just drew me in! I absolutely loved this book! There was a slice of history I knew nothing about...the detail being enough to give me a decent picture of that era in America. But interwoven in the political and human drama is God's healing and restoration, His direction, and the lives of many imperfect people played out in such a beautiful story that its difficult to put down. Gilbert Morris is a truly gifted author!
