Review by: Sharon Schuler on Feb. 08, 2013 :
The short synopsis grabbed my attention and the book did not let me down. Completely different from something I would usually read; however, the characters drew me in and kept me intested through the end. This author/book are one of those rare finds and even though the subject matter is horrendous I would not be ashamed for one of my children or grandchildren to read this. Would love to read a sequal of Jo's future life and endeavours.

Review by: Geoffrey A. Feller on Jan. 13, 2013 :
Fascinating, unusual characters and interesting details. The slow healing of a psychologically damaged protagonist was compelling to read about. For me, there was a slight loss of momentum in the final third but by then I cared enough about the characters that reaching the satisfying conclusion was well worth the reading.
