The feeling I got from this storyline stuck with me for years. And I still reread it several times! I love a book that moves your soul in an almost painful way, the characters become a part of the fabric of your life.
I loved this book. I believe I cried at certain spots.
I thought this book was pretty good.. It really gets you involved in the beginning but seems to lead to nowhere for a while. The character development is a little shallow. I enjoyed it though. It was at least entertaining enough to draw one in and keep the interest.
loved the book! great story, starts off a bit slow, but worth the wait to get to the good part.
Wonderful book, very touching. Made me consider adopting a child with Downs Syndrome.
LOVED this book!!!!! Haven't seen the movie yet, but I definately plan too!
I liked this book - it kept me interested, it was touching, but it was a little slow.
I thought this was a very good book that was not done any justice at all by the movie made of it. If that's all you know of the story, don't give up on the book. It truly speaks to the human ability to compartmentalize the horrible things we do to protect ourselves, or those we love. It doesn't sugar coat. Some mistakes cannot be fixed, some things you can't take back. I understand why the doctor sent away his daughter on the night of her birth, but it was his undoing and rightly so, sad as that was. Still, his daughter was given the gift of a wonderful life. A wonderful read for a long winter night.
This book was very touching, not what you would expect. As always the book outshone the movie. I definitely recommend this book.
I wouldn't recommend, I had to force myself to finish it.
I saw this book review in a magazine and decided to read it. I really enjoyed it and had no idea there was a movie too, I will have to check it out!
Loved this book. It is a bit hard to get through the first 50 pages....but once you do, it is a wonderful story!!!!
Loved this book. It is heartfelt and touching!
