I recently read this book and thought it was well written and enjoyable. I was wondering has anyone else read it? Often a book is read and forgotten, however this book has stayed with me and I can't get it out of my mind. Gastien and his family captivated me, absorbed like a sponge, encapsulated me and sucked me in like a vacuum cleaner. I know his life will forever be a part of me. It’s as if you are watching each scene happen, I felt the pain and the joy in tears along with hurt and humility. Caddy’s unique style of writing, let me (the reader) be totally absorbed into and become part of the character. I felt that I was right there. Books can always take you places, but this story put me into the room and mind of the character.
