This book is one of the books that gets written about endlessly on book blogs. I feel like every blog I have read for the past couple years has had a review of it. So how could I possibly resist when I found a copy on the Library Sale shelves? 50 cents and many months later, I can now add my review to the mix.
I enjoyed this book but I have to say I preferred the parts of the book that focused on Cal. I did appreciate the historical and ancestral context of Cal's life, but still would have preferred less of that and more of hearing about Cal. The story was engrossing and well told and I'd definitely check out the author's other books. I see why this book was so talked about. Recommended.
