"True account of refugees in Clarkston, GA coming together to form soccer teams. Hard to read at times - rich backstories, intense journeys. This is a nice pick for bookclubs, will bring out all sorts of discussion about political views/immigration etc."
"This might seem like a fluff book but it is actually really good. The tone is light - women meeting together at the park weekly - but it addresses all sorts of topis of its time; women's liberation, civil rights, early cancer cases. . . One of my favorite scenes is when all the families gather around to watch the astronauts walk on the moon for the first time."
"Reading this felt like reading the Bible (its long!) This is the story of a missionary family in Africa....and everyone's point of view, likes, dislikes, struggles. It's intense and there are some harsh scenes. It felt like an epic to read."
