Thoroughly enjoyed reading this poignant tale. Well developed characters and a storyline that kept me intrigued until the end. It was enlightening to learn about a culture and customs that I was not familiar with. Highly recommend this book. It would make a lovely Christmas gift for the readers on your list. -Amazon Review
