Better than Dickens. Better than Steinbeck.
A sensitive literary portrayal of life inside the great Appalachian migration.
And, like all great literature, says something about each of us.

Riveting, soul stirring, book weaves an amazing story.

Have only just finished the book. I read a condensed version of same in a Readers Digest about 20 years ago and always wondered what happened. Now I know, and am moved, emotionally and intellectually. I had thought that Dickens was my yardstick for social commentary but now will have to add Ms Arnow and let her sit up there with all the greats. A most thought provoking novel. It is difficult to believe the characters are figments of an imagination, so alive are they - the whole book is a tapestry and a work of art.
