This story fills in so many gaps from Betty's Book - the first in the series. Gaps you didn't know you were missing. The narration is done very well. The history in these books just grabs you and keeps you there.
heart wrenching series...if more people read this kind of book, maybe they could put it into today's context and troubles of our generation....the narration on all these books goes beyond exceptional! Couldnt imagine any other voice doing this with such an amazing way of bringing all these characters to life and absorb you so far into the story that you feel you are there yourself ! Amazing and well done to both author and narrator.
