Imaginative
5 stars By Ibu Guru, May 01 2016
This story has plenty of twists and turns to keep you reading. The saddistressing historical bits are done with a light hand, so you won't be kept awake with nightmares, (unlike other books that keep you wallowing in grief). But it does remind one to be grateful for our present blessings.  All in all, it is an enjoyable read.
