A perfect blend of writer and narrator
Touching, sad and surprising.
Anne Miller was my favorite character. Her story arc was very touching. I don't want to give away plot points, but what happens to her is so important to the book and the other characters.
It would have to be Pa. I have a thousand questions I would want to ask him. Plus, I would love to be able to sit across from him and ask him why!
Paul Curtis' voice was just perfect for this novel. It felt exactly as it should have been; a grandpa telling the story of his life and revealing why the secret had been kept all these years.
