Customer Review

Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Amity and sorrow was not for me. God, cults, farming.... No thanks. But then Peggy Riley, the author, came to our book club and convinced me to give it a go.

The book follows Amaranth (Amy) who is mother to Amity and Sorrow. They have escaped a cult and this is their story. It goes back in time, to their past and then looks at the present day and how they will cope without the security of their extended family.

Reading some of the other reviews I was expecting this to be uncomfortable reading... If only it was! This was quite possibly the dullest book I've ever read and it really shouldn't have been considering the subject matter. It all felt very flat and rushed. I just couldn't imagine any of it happening.

I also found myself confused at times and not at all sure what was happening. I couldn't warm to any of the characters really but Sorrow was so irritating. I just wanted to give her a slap!

Sadly, I really didn't enjoy this but not for obvious reasons. I really liked Peggy but this fell short of my expectations.
