Well, apparently, they do. I am spinning from all the "talk" about this book. The comments are very gracious and several have made me cry. I am so grateful for the kindness of others.
Here are some reviews that came in today:
I finished this book this morning. I started it last night. OMG! What a nightmare. She had to be strong to survive all of those challenges and a VERY strong faith. Admirable. Very unusual challenges to overcome. Positive strength and faith were her best friends. I really enjoyed this novel. I was able to read it very quickly and loved the large print. A. M.
Finished Battered Hope. I will never again complain about my insignificant problems. So sad she had to go through all that but so glad that she made it this far. Thanks for the example of faith under fire. D. M.
