A Perfectly Told Story by a Gifted Writer
Reviewed in the United States on January 17, 2018
Almost 36,000 reviews and 86 percent are five stars. What's THAT about, I thought. So I read the book, and now I know what the raves are all about. This book is one of the best, if not the best book I have ever read. Hannah writes like an angel. The book isn't a fast read, at least not for me, because I would go back and reread a sentence just to enjoy the mastery with which it was written. Hannah's style doesn't try to be high literature, but the result is. She writes beautiful scenery and background, but not so much as many authors do. Her characters, well, I felt like I knew them, like old friends, not without flaws, but perfectly developed.
So I add my five-star review to the others. Read this book. It will take you away from whatever you're doing. This was my first book from Kristin Hannah. It won't be my last
