Oh I loved this book. It was so beautiful!!!It was a wonderful Story of Womanhood and motherhood..I loved the story, I had to keep in perspective that this was a fictional novel based on real people. There were parts of the book that I really want to believe happened the way they did and other parts that I really hope is not the way it happened..Anyways I absolutely love Dinah and her story of her mother's and her description of each of them and her own relationship with each of them. I am an only daughter with 6 brothers, so I could relate a little in the way that my mother and my aunts doted on me..Anita Diamant is an awesome author and portrayed this story of Dinah so beautifully. It was sad but isn't everyone's life a little sad??
BEWARE A LITTLE BIT OF A SPOILER!!!!!I am so glad that she was reunited with her favorite brother in the end and she got a little closure.. When she was back at her home in the end and the little niece was talking about the "story of Dinah" I wanted Dinah to holler out "I'm Dinah" "your sitting right here with her" "The story is true"!!!
This book is for my winter challenge, whitcoulls, whats in a name, and library challenge.
