Critic Reviews

"Tatlock adeptly traces the girls' journey of faith with a light and sometimes humorous touch. She does an excellent job juxtaposing the horrors of Americans in Japanese hands and Japanese-Americans in the hands of their countrymen. Tatlock employs flashbacks efficiently, and her rich descriptions and characterizations are unusually fresh and inventive. Other Christian novelists would do well to emulate this quality contribution." (Publishers Weekly)

All the Way Home

This is an excellent book. With so much attention being given to illegal immigrants this book draws attention to how we treat our own citizens. Some of which who went through the painstaking process of becoming United States citizens through naturalization and some who were never immigrants in the first place. In every place there are going to be those who hate and those who love. The latter takes the help of the Almighty. That's what this book is all about. It's a must read for this point in time.

Never wanted to put down my headphones

I really enjoyed this book. It kept my interest and had great character depth. Inspiring and wonderful reading that was very enjoyable from beginning to end. Not a book that takes several chapters to get into. From the very beginning I found myself not wanting to put down my headphones.
