I don't normally read historical fiction, but if there are more books as good as this one, I'm sure going to read more of this genre.
This book is hauntingly beautiful, and I love everything about it, even the parts that wrecked my heart.
The story was so captivating that I couldn't think of anything else, but this book - how Judith's life was going be, who had done that to her and why. Just several pages in, I wept like a baby. My heart ached for her and what she had to go through. Being shunned and discriminated against even when she herself was a victim was just so cruel beyond words could describe.
This is one of the books that I will find time to reread. Because once is not enough.(Some) Favorite Quotes
