An enjoyable story
I am not good at this but liked this book enough to give it a try. It is a simple story that has no surprizing twists along the way but the narration is very good and the characters are people you can like. The 10 year old girl that is the central character is a treat and so are the two old men in her life. I enjoyed it and hope others will get the same good feelings and enjoyment from it.

Unfortunately I have lived this book.
I live in Wyoming. I definately feel a "kinship" with the main character in this story. Sadness prevails here where I live alone, because I lost my son also, August 2008.
Although the movie is very good, played by my favorite movie actors Redford & Freeman, I feel the book is much better, and I wish the movie had stayed closer to the way the book was written.
I hope no one ever has to go through the loss of their child. As was said in the movie, "We (parents), are not supposed to outlive our children".
To bad I don't have someone like Morgan Freeman to lean on. You will enjoy this book.
