You feel the experiences of Margaret, the protagonist. I also understood the motivations and behaviors of the other characters. Being able to make the reader care about all of the characters is one of the things that makes some authors better than others. It's relatively easy to make us understand the main character, but making us care about the others is a real talent.
Finished the book that night and sent copies off to friends. What better recommendation than buying it for others?
Buy this book for yourself, your best friend, your mother, your sister, everyone you know!
"You have to find the inspiration in struggle, and pull joy out of hardship."
