An Engaging Story
- Laura Hernandez
A wonderful story with a wonderful performance!
Yes, because it was so well done!
Ruthie. I loved listening to her tell the story.
A certain scene with Robby, but no spoilers here! I think all the scenes between Ruthie and Robby were among my favorites because I enjoyed the differences in their personalities.
There were three! I remember because that's how many times I heard myself gasp out loud!
The writing was wonderful, creating such a clear picture of the setting and characters for me. Every night I looked forward to my visits to Bodie. I loved the narration, too. It was so well done! Another reviewer mentioned she should have bought a copy of the book and read along. What a great idea! I wish I had thought of that, too.There were moments in this story that caught me by surprise. This story and the characters will stay with me.
I would like to mention that I received a free copy of this story from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.
