Journal Entry 1 by wingbookczukwing from Charleston, South Carolina USA on Tuesday, February 27, 2007
The whole time I was reading this, I had the setting placed in the South (Arkansas, or Alabama) or maybe TExas or even possibly some remote midwest place. But I just read a review that said the story is set in South CArolina. South CArolina????? No Way! There may be folks that are holier than thou, talk in tongues and think the Baptists are sinful, but this just didn't strike me as a SC Story.

The other thing that has distracted me is that, as a pediatric nurse, I kept worrying about poor Canaan, and all the milestones he was missing.

But, all in all, a well crafted story.

Picked this up at the BookCrossing meeting. I'm looking forward to reading this one.

Journal Entry 4 by brownwhitetan from Charleston, South Carolina USA on Saturday, October 27, 2007
I struggled with this read. I mean, the read was easy enough, but I didn't relate. For starters, it was hard to not think of the characters as black rather than white. I'm not sure what it is that made me feel that way, but it took a long time to reconcile myself to the fact that they were backwoods rednecks. It was a very different story, but not something I'd read again.
