Recommended to me because I like stories about local places. I thought it was a pretty good story, tailed off a little at the end, but it's a story about relationships and friendships, and there's usually not a complete story arc with relationships. So maybe it's quite true to life. There seems to be an awful lot of negative reviews of this book, and I'm not sure why. It's a better story IMO than some of the other recent "local history fiction" books I've read. And while I have a connection to the setting, it's not as big a player in this story as the characters and plot. I might try another title by this author in the future.… (lisätietoja)

Simple pero contundente, te deja reflexionando sobre viejos tiempos y sobre tus propias vivencias. Lo he disfrutado muchísimo.… (lisätietoja)

Isaac's mother, Shiloh has a tenuous relationship with her father, especially since she took up the minister of a fundamentalist church. Shiloh soon moves in with the minister, Steven. Isaac has diabetes and Shiloh and Steven think they can cure him not by using medication, but by praying over him.
