Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved It I liked it. I REALLY liked it. The writing was good, the characters were realistic, the story was heart breaking. The way she interpreted the situation about both the Natives and Christians being in the "light" was beautiful and her growth was astounding. The only thing that kept me from giving it five stars was how devestated I was by the ending.
