The homecoming of Samuel Lake….
I am a fast reader. This book was 352 pages, and I read it in approximately 2.5 hours.
The author, in my opinion, wrote very well. Her imagery is vivid, and she writes in a sort of narrative, stream-of-consciousness style that I would use if I was relating these events to a friend.
There are some triggers – abuse, rape, animal cruelty.
But the story, overwhelmingly, is about survivors and hope. The belief in a better day, a better life, a better expectation of mankind.
(I believe the book is due for release in 2013, but I obtained a copy through a book fair of some sort…shh!)
