One minor caveat about the book: several of the characters speak in a more colloquial manner ("Baby, don't pay her no never mind," "She doesn't favor a soul in your family," "mama," "folks.") Since no one in my or my husband's family speaks this way, sometimes it feels stilted rolling off my tongue.
The author of the book is a professional actress in Minneapolis, where I used to live, and this was her first children's book, which may explain the dramatic language. Her second book about the character Hope is called "Family" but isn't nearly as good.
