Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

http://www.amazon.com/Thirty-Girls-Susan-Minot-ebook/dp/B00EMXBCYE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1395280683&sr=8-2&keywords=Thirty+girls

I found this a very difficult book to review. I was anxious to read it because of the real story. It was like reading two books simultaneously. Two books that overlapped for a brief time. The writing style was very slow paced. It was a quiet book to read. I imagined if it was being read out loud, it would be read by someone with a very soft voice in a most unhurried manner.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book that told of the girls. It was a difficult subject to read but I wanted more of that story. The other part, with Jane and Harry just seemed disconnected somehow. I don’t even know how to put into words how it made me feel.

I don’t know that I can recommend this book. But I can’t discourage anyone from reading it. It was good, yet it wasn’t. I gave it three stars. But really, the story about the girls was a five star story and the story about the writer was a one star story.
