My book of the year 2013!
on 23 September 2013
I found this on the Oprah Winfrey book club list and was enthralled from page 1!
I love the narration which covers the lives of the 2 main characters up to a point and then from that point on.
The story narrates the life of a baby girl left on the steps of a YMCA. The girl tells the reader of her mothers story up to the point of abandoning her, and it simultaneously tells the story of her life.
Beautifully written. Captivating. I haven't read a story like it before and would 100% recommend everyone reads it!
