What I can say about a book, that on its inside flap, implored the reader not to divulge the story? Not to share with friends what the story was about so that each reader would come to it fresh and hopeful? I'll try not to give anything away.
First the writing is lyrical like a song being sung to you. The story alternates between the two women, Sarah and Little Bee. Each with her own voice, full of pain, hope, and fear. Each struggling to make it.
This is a story about two women who meet under extraordinary circumstances and become unlikely allies. I feel like I lack the ability to really explain it without giving away so much of the meat. Suffice to say, read it. It's a short novel, packed with a lot of story. You may need to put it down to digest but you'll be anxious to pick it up again.
