I read this one awhile ago and am just getting around to writing my review of it now. I was kind of hestitant to read it- I mean hello, talk about DEPRESSING- but it has been one of those books that has stayed with me. But be warned, you'll want to keep that box of tissues near by- just thinking about the story brings tears to my eyes. Forman's writing is simple and beautiful and her descriptions evoke multiple senses at once. It is haunting- in the best sense of the word.
